@role attribute, and ARIA global content attributes should be reflected DOM
attributes.

Was talking to Robin Berjon at the recent HTML F2F meeting, and he requested I
file this bug. Since @role and the ARIA global attributes are allowed
everywhere, making them reflected content attributes would be very useful to
web developers. 

The only challenge I can predict for this would be specifying the bits that
ARIA refers to as the "Implicit Value for Role:"

For example, when role="alert"
 • Default for aria-live is assertive.
 • Default for aria-atomic is true.

So these two are functionally identical:
<div role="alert"></div>
<div role="alert" aria-live="assertive"></div>

This may pose a problem for making *all* the global attrs reflected, but should
not pose a problem for @role.
