I still think the right answer is XBL.

As for this points under 4:

  1. This is also true for e.g. event handlers. XBL solves this.
  2. <link rel="aria"> is not valid either. Also, by the time this would
     actually work in browsers I'm sure we fixed validation for ARIA.
     (In fact, I think validator.nu already validates it to quite some
     extend today.)
  3. ARIA is typically for applications that do not really have lots of
     pages so this argument is dubious. Besides that extra network hits
     are costly. Anyway, XBL solves this too.
