Hi Jon!
If so, than the people from the HTML5 development have not understood
the role=presentation from the wai-aria spec. It serves for signaling to
the ATs that the contents of an element is a pure presentational thing.
For this reason hide the screen readers the complete content of such an
element from the users.

At one point the border attribute and role=presentation were in the
draft as differentiators.
