Just so we are all clear - this is nothing different than what happens 
already in standard Windows, Java, Linux, etc. software applications. 
There are events fired by the software application that the assistive 
technology and user has to pay attention to.  The same thing will need to 
happen in the AJAX web world of things.  That is what the PFWG is working 
on specifying.
