apologies for being unclear, the problem is that it is not clear to me what
effect adding an accesskey attribute has on the default role of an element.
Please add a clarification to the ARIA section of the spec stating that the
default role of any element which has an accesskey attribute is overidden by
role="menuitem" if this is the case.

so what is the role of

<h1 accesskey="a" role=button"> hello </h1>

please add clarification in the spec for cases such as the above.
