It's not so much "which principles of WCAG 2.0 ARIA satisfies", but 
rather "how can you use ARIA to satisfy the Success Criteria". Have a 
look at the (non-normative) Techniques document 
http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/ (or 
http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/complete.html for the single-file 
version), there are a few ARIA techniques already mentioned there. Note 
that this TECHS document is dated 11 Dec 2008, so there may be quite a 
few new things you can do with ARIA. Also, as with any technology, you 
need to decide for yourself if you feel that ARIA is sufficiently 
"accessibility supported" for your particular audience/environment/use
