There appears to have been some confusion on the most recent TAG
telecon about the maturity of the WAI-ARIA work.

TBL: This is the first working draft?

HT: Yes.

DC: Well, but there were precursor drafts that were later sliced into  
different pieces.

PFWG is working to release a Last Call draft of the WAI-ARIA
specification <http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria/> in a month or so.

The fourth of four major browsers has started work on
implementation.

The "first public working draft" status of the present TR
draft is a misleading technicality. The present document is only  
brand new
in that it subsumes what had been through
earlier public working drafts in separate documents.

We also look forward to having a public Editor's draft in
a week or two to aid in coordination down to the wire.
