oh I missed your point, suggest you bring it up with the browser
implementers who have implemented aria-haspopup to map to corresponding
properties in MSAA, IA2, ATK/AT-SPI, UIA and Mac AX accessibility API's and
the AT's such as JAWS, VoiceOver, NVDA etc, that expose  aria-haspopup, as
provided by the browser, to users.
