This is only an amendment to text that is in HTML5
<http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/dom.html#wai-aria>

Authors may use the ARIA role

The updated text points to the document conformance requirements now
located in the ARIA in HTML spec, rather than referring to the tables of
requirements in the HTML spec.

ARIA has always allowed host languages to define document conformance
criteria for use of ARIA, as described in
http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria/host_languages
