           Summary: drop WAI-ARIA scope restriction in the text adopted in
                    ISSUE-204
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec
        AssignedTo: erika.doyle@microsoft.com
        ReportedBy: eoconnor@apple.com

Currently, the spec says

> User Agents are encouraged to expose the full semantics of hidden
> elements to Assistive Technology when such elements are referenced
> from WAI-ARIA attributes such as aria-describedby.

Instead of specifically referring to WAI-ARIA here, we could generalize
this encouragement to other such cases. Something like this maybe:

> When a hidden="" element is related to another element by ID reference
> (e.g. with aria-describedby=""), User Agents are encouraged to expose
> the full semantics of the hidden="" element to Assistive Technology.

This might help alleviate PF's concern that HTML5 unduly specifies
changes to WAI-ARIA in this clause.
