Minor comments:

1. Many of the links in this document that are pointers into the HTML spec do not point to the HTML 5.1 specification.  For example http://www.w3.org/TR/html/infrastructure.html#strong-native-semantics.  Given that the Normative Reference is now to HTML 5.1 I would have expected these links to point to at either the HTML 5.1 WD on the TR page or to the HTML 5.1 Editor’s Draft.

2. “The following table describes the default implicit ARIA semantics that apply to HTML elements as defined in the HTML Accessibility API Mappings specification”

This text includes a link to the upcoming “HTML Accessibility API Mappings 1.0” Editor’s Draft at http://rawgit.com/w3c/aria/master/html-aam/html-aam.html.  This should be added to the Normative References and eventually should refer to the FPWD when it is published itself.

3. Status section

It would be useful if the Status section could include information on bugs ie https://github.com/webspecs/html-aria/issues and maybe where the reader could find the github version in order to make a pull request ie https://github.com/webspecs/html-aria

Hi all,
here is a FPWD version of ARIA in HTML

looks like mailing list info is missing?

            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


            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


        After checking with the domain lead (PLH) and others, a new CfC
        for a FPWD is required.  That being said: the presence of bugs
        (e.g. in the links from and to the HTML spec) are not a
        concern.  And this document can start out with the 2014 process,
        so a single CfC should suffice. And finally, the fact that much
        of this content has previously been published should make this
        easier.  This means that the WG review will most likely focus on
        things like the status section.

        Such a section is not present in the webplatform document you
        linked above.

        Netting this all out: if you can work with Robin to prepare a
        version of this document that would be suitable for publishing
        by Echidna[1], I can start a CfC which will run for 7 days.
        Once that is successfully complete, you should be able to update
        the document at will.
