Speaking for myself, I understand the WAI PF WG's first comment, recorded here,
as essentially saying "We don't believe there is a conflict between XSD's
notion of
symbol spaces and ARIA's use of the 'aria-' prefix in naming ARIA attributes;
please 
confirm or deny."

Again speaking for myself, I think the WAI PF WG is correct, there is no
conflict,
and the XML Schema WG should confirm that we agree there is no conflict.

Some may believe that the use of string prefixes instead of namespaces is a
weak method of ensuring uniqueness and that ARIA would do better to use a 
namespace.  But we have not been asked for our advice as vocabulary designers.
As a matter of specification compatibility there is no conflict here.  (And
even
on the design side -- if namespaces are such a good way to handle things,
why does the Namespaces spec reserve a literal prefix for itself instead
of using its own mechanism?)
