Hi,
This is a QA Review comment for "XHTML Role Attribute Module"

The specifications says:
	"It is used by applications and assistive technologies to determine the purpose of UI widgets."
	
We are not sure that the role attribute is only limited for UI widgets. Is it really the case? If someone where defining a list of values for calendars or addresses with only a better semantic purpose, would it be a non conformant usage or role attribute?
