Consider providing in the ARIA section of the spec clear unambigous user
firendly linked references to the various WAI-ARIA documents. To make it as
easy as possible for authors to learn more about WAI-ARIA.
For example like those provided in this document:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Consider adding an introduction to the WAI-ARIA section of the html5 spec
talking about what WAI-ARIA is.
see for an example:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The plan is to do cross-references to the ARIA spec (indeed the markup is
already ready for this); we're just waiting on the tools to be written to make
this automatic.

EDITOR'S RESPONSE: This is an Editor's Response to your comment. If you are
satisfied with this response, please change the state of this bug to CLOSED. If
you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML
Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest
title and text for the tracker issue; or you may create a tracker issue
yourself, if you are able to do so. For more details, see this document:
   http://dev.w3.org/html5/decision-policy/decision-policy.html

Status: Accepted
Change Description: none yet
Rationale: Marking LATER until the tools are available.

If you meant something other than cross-referencing roles, properties, and
states, then please file a separate bug that clearly states the request.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The bug-triage sub-team doesn't consider this to be task force priority as it
is just a matter of implementation. Note that ARIA is XML based and has XML
features that can be parsed with XPath automatically that go beyond just
classes and IDs.
