Not a problem Brian and I appreciate your feedback. 

I am doing everything I can right now to lock down ARIA 1.1 to be able to synch with HTML 5.1 and SVG2. So, I am going to be a bit of a task master here. :-)

I am trying to not open more issues unless the sky will fall. So, for the next few months you can address me as grumpy Rich until ARIA 1.1 is done.

The fact that we tell the AT that there is a password should cause them to render the actual text. Otherwise, it is a performance concern to do it all the time.
