<input type=file> is typically presented as a compound control - for example:

Firefox: text field + button as in Firefox
Safari: button + optional icon + label

It is important to expose all parts of the control, so a "button" role for the
whole thing is inappropriate. It would be better to have the default role be no
role, since ARIA doesn't have a corresponding role for this particular compound
