I don't want to speak for @annevk but I can provide my own take 

> ?  If you unset the UI sheet you might 'technically' get content but it would be 99% unusuable to actual humans I think.

- We definitely have talked about reasons to explain underlying magic to CSS to allow it to express in a similar way but have different implications to do things like set attributes (@tabatkins had a cascading attribute sheets proposal I think) but I think very fitting would be less about setting aria _attributes_ here but maybe something lower/more AOM like in a way more like CSS custom properties?

To @annevk's original post I kind of wonder about it a little more nuanced that I read his question - so while I am not sure how starkly he means it I am myself very curious in asking "perhaps we have over-stressed some things and would it be helpful (I think yes) for the WG to examine and articulate a more finessed philosophy here that accounts for a lot of history, practice and reality since that allow us to resolve a lot of things and give us good practical paths forward"?
