The main issue with this is that the mappings are incomplete, many elements in
the ARIA section have no default roles,state or properties. Accessibility APIs
have role states and properties not included in ARIA. How ARIA should map to
accessibility APIs is in the ARIA implememntation guide. How HTML5 should map
to  accessibility APIs should be in a HTML5 to accessibility API implementation
