Hi,

The WAI Protocols and Formats WG (PFWG) [1] is looking into schema-based 
checking of Web applications that use the WAI-ARIA semantics [2]. They 
will be looking into some of the new Semantic Web technologies such as 
GRDDL [3], SPARQL [4] and RIF [5] to accomplish this.

There is no concrete pointer right now (Task Force or project page etc) 
but we will be informed as soon as this work gets under way. I think we 
should be monitoring this work as it evolves.

[3] <http://www.w3.org/TR/grddl/>
     <http://www.w3.org/TR/grddl-tests/>
[4] <http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-sparql-query/>
[5] <http://www.w3.org/TR/rif-core/>

Let us know if you have questions or comments but otherwise no action is 
needed at this point in time.

Regards,
   Shadi
