Hi Chris,

just wondering about progress on this webkit bug (
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=77298) as it affects a number of
JavaScript library implementations

Examples of affected javascript widgets:

in the Ext GWT library the simple form the spin button is identified using
ARIA role=spinbutton , it is incorrectly exposed as progress indicator

in the Dojo digit library
