There may be an interesting Editorial problem here.  The HTML 5.1 Editor’s draft refers to your ‘ARIA in HTML’ Editor’s draft in the following text WITHOUT actually adding a Normative Reference:
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/#wai-aria

3.2.7.1 ARIA Authoring Requirements
Authors may use the ARIA role<http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/infrastructure.html#attr-aria-role> and aria-* attributes on HTML elements<http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/infrastructure.html#html-elements>, in accordance with the requirements described in the ARIA specifications, except where these conflict with the requirements specified in ARIA in HTML<https://specs.webplatform.org/html-aria/webspecs/master/>.
This seems to imply that the ‘ARIA in HTML” Editor’s draft is still “part of HTML 5.1” and should be published at the same time as the next HTML 5.1 heartbeat.

Robin:  What do you recommend here?

Hi Paul,
So I am presuming you simply want to publish a heartbeat for this specification.  If so as Editor you can arrange to do this without any explicit action by the HTML WG.

name confusion -
Using WAI-ARIA in HTML
http://www.w3.org/TR/2014/WD-aria-in-html-20140626/

and
ARIA in HTML
https://specs.webplatform.org/html-aria/webspecs/master/

are different documents. 'ARIA in HTML' is the module spec that replaces the bulk of the content in the HTML5 WAI-ARIA section.

Hi all,
The ARIA in HTML spec is getting close to the point (i think) where it will be ready for publication as a WD
https://specs.webplatform.org/html-aria/webspecs/master/


What is the process for making this happen?


Note the html 5.1 nightly WAI-ARIA section has been updated to point to ARIA in HTML along with the Acc API spec
