Also not sure with the upcoming Opera 14 (based on Chromium) if those 
features will be present at all, as some of the older stuff had to be 
sacrificed for the rendering engine switch...

Speaking of ARIA, and in particular ARIA roles: am I right in thinking 
that browsers should, in theory, automatically map new HTML5 structural 
elements to ARIA roles? And, if so, does any browser already do it...and 
more importantly, is that exposed via JavaScript in any way? I tried 
accessing the "role" attribute on elements like <main> and <header>, but 
unless there's an actual role attribute in the HTML itself, that 
property doesn't seem to be present in JS for those elements...am I 
missing something?
