Thanks. And do you see any inherent problem in this microdata/RDFa-in-schema.org approach conflicting in any way with ARIA? Is there any reason the same sort of semantics couldn't or shouldn't be captured both ways? This is not a rhetorical question. Your answer may be yes, there is a reason, and if so I'd like to know that!

In many ways, yes, it's exactly what AT would want. But to the best of my knowledge AT doesn't make use of that sort of semantics just yet, and I don't know that anyone is entirely clear on how it could. So we have to make do with what's at the raw HTML level.
