--- Comment #2 from Michael[tm] Smith <mike@w3.org> ---
The HTML spec disallows particular role values on particular elements. Not all
role values are actually allowed on every element.

In this case, the spec explicitly and intentionally disallows role=directory
for the <section> element; see the table here:

 
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/dom.html#sec-implicit-aria-semantics

Cc'ing Steve Faulkner so that he can comment on the rationale for that. But
moving this to resolved=wontfix due to the fact that as far as I can tell the
validator is in conformance with the current requirements in the HTML spec
here.
