Great info, thanks.

This seems to leave aria-sort API mapping out in the wild for a while for UIA and AXAPI:
http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-1.1/#aria-sort and  https://www.w3.org/TR/core-aam-1.1/ aria-sort

(because there will be no API mapping for the native concept of sort in tables which one could then reuse for aria-sort)

Regards
Stefan

Sorry to rain on the parade, but this is a bit lugubrious to me. WHO refused that and WHEN and WHERE was that documented?

Consider removing table sorting model
https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/345

Was it as part of the W3C Call for Implementation process?

that process mostly has little meaning these days.
