As I worked with reopening bug 10618 (see the 11th comment there:
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10618#c11), it became clear that
the "Strong native semantics" section (and the concept of "strong native
semantics")  depends on the section/concept of Implict ARIA semantics".

This depenndence relates, put simply, to the fact that strong native semantics
is nothing but default implicit ARIA semantics that are considered to be be
strong. (Exception that confirms the rule: features with no ARIA-defined role.
However, if ARIA would define the meaning of "no ARIA-defined role", then one
could consider "no ARIA-defined role" as a special variant of "implicit ARIA

How strong depends on default implicit ARIA semantics, is already expressed in
the strong table and other places. (See bug 20697)

To show this dependence and relationship, I propose to place the section on
"Implicit ARIA Semantics" *before* the section on "Strong Native Semantics".

As part of this reshuffle, then - inside the column heading for the second
column of the "weak" table, pleace consider adding a link to the definition of
'default implicit ARIA semantics'
