(Note: CCing the PFWG)

Someone has suggested on the validator list that there be a version of 
the XHTML 1.0 DTDs that includes the ARIA attributes.  They also 
mentioned the HTML 4.01 DTDs.  I was going to just create such a thing, 
but perhaps we should have a strategy for this?

Let's do it this way, since there is no room on our plate for more 
discussions right now.  If no one objects by C.O.B. US Eastern Time on 
Friday, 30 January I will assume this is a fine thing and just slap it 
together using the ARIA DTD module implementation we already have.  Once 
done, I will place it in MarkUp/DTD and tell the validator people it is 
there.  No formal status or anything - just something people who care 
can use to create valid, accessible markup.
