I think having a normative spec for ARIA is HTML 5 is absolutely
something that the HTML WG needs to produce. But having a spec of
HTML 4.01 + ARIA is not. And if the need to produce a HTML 4.01 +
ARIA DTD and have support in validator.w3.org for it is urgent,
then I really don't think taking a discussion about it to the HTML
WG as whole to try to get consensus on it is what you want to do.
