Can you be more specific?  One thing we will do is change the mapping 
for role region to:

"IAccessible2: IA2_ROLE_LANDMARK and object attribute xml-roles:region".

For comparison, the current ATK/AT-SPI mapping is [1]:
"ROLE_LANDMARK and object attribute xml-roles:region".

The other possible update is to do that for *all* landmark roles. Using 
role="banner" as an example, the ATK/AT-SPI mapping is [2]:
"ROLE_LANDMARK and object attribute xml-roles:banner".

Hence, IA2 becomes:
"IAccessible2: IA2_ROLE_LANDMARK and object attribute xml-roles:banner".

Is that correct?  If so, it would partially fix bugzilla 28816:
