Doug,

as you will know I am interest in why W3 working groups fail to  
engage the naive user in creating specifications.

Outcomes include such questions as:
why CSS user style sheets aren't in general popular use?
why is the easy to use publishing software, corporate owned?
etc

in the case of ARIA much work has been contributed concerning adding  
semantic information to documents.

Where are the test cases and documentation describing how the naive  
user, possibly with (mild?) learning disabilities,  will engage  
usefully with the final products?

how is it proposed that the non-developer author aria compliant  
documents?

Has any user testing (whatsoever) been undertaken?

regards
