That might help performance, yes, though only at a certain memory cost 
on the UA end.

I think Olli's suggestion that aria-specific events are the way to go 
here is the one that requires the fewest changes in browser 
implemenations (more or less none) and specifications (also none for the 
existing specifications).  It does require that someone dispatch those 
events, of course.
