Sorry about that, I got this part confused with another thread.

My point was in regard to the section 5.6.3 Relations at

Where it states:

Often in a GUI, there are relationships between the widgets that can be exposed programmatically to assistive technology. WAI-ARIA provides several relationship properties which are globally applicable to any element: aria-controls, aria-describedby, aria-flowto, aria-labelledby, aria-owns, aria-posinset, and aria-setsize. Therefore, it is not important to check the role before computing them. User agents can simply map these relations to accessibility APIs as defined in the section titled State and Property Mapping.

I'm confused, since I wasn't saying anything about event bubbling. I was discussing a mandated procedure for setting the AAPI focusable state on possible active descendants.
