They actually don't have to be if you serialize the ARIA attributes with 
setAttributeNS(). It's a second reasonable option, instead of mime type

Hi Jon,

I thought ARIA examples had to be delivered to Firefox as
application/xhtml+xml to use namespacing for the DOM methods. I use
content negotiation to deliver ARIA examples to Firefox as
application/xhtml+xml, but obviously don't to IE, as IE can't handle
that MIME type.

Best regards,
