Hi Josh,

I already volunteered more or less officially for an update review of 

http://www.paciellogroup.com/blog/2010/04/html5-and-the-myth-of-wai-aria-redundance/

Background was: I asked for a delta benefit overview of ARIA 1.0 on top of HTML5.
We can do this now for HTML5 spec seems to be quite frozen.

Hope I can address this soon, this will form up the basic work. 
Then the subsequent actions addressing your concern are likely more straightforward.

All best,
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

> it is often topic of blog articles and I think also a "common feeling"  that many benefits come from the combined usage of HTML5 and ARIA.

Absolutely.

> So I wonder why we have two separate wiki pages dealing with the same set of techniques applied to the same given topic.

Well, they are different technologies. You have certainly hit on the 
bigger question around how we either approach disambiguating the two 
further, or conflating them further. I'm not sure myself, so answers on 
a postcard please.

> I think most readers will benefit from a description using both in a constructive and supplementary way.

I agree, are you volunteering?

Cheers

Josh
