Yes, ARIA is being integrated into HTML 5. We anticipate support in
other languages as well; the schemata page I referenced contains some
already and would contain any others we develop (except ones built
straight into the host language as is the case for HTML 5). Some of the
resources referenced from http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/aria contain more
information. Michael
