           Summary: ARIA section does not list elements that have no
                    default role or role restrictions
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC

         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch

Some HTML elements have no special ARIA semantics - neither a default role nor
restrictions on allowed roles. While it can be inferred that this is true of
any element not explicitly mentioned, it is helpful for implementors and
reviewers of the spec to have an explicit list, if only to be confident that
missing elements are supposed to be handled this way, and were not just
overlooked.

Elements in this category:

a (not representing a hyperlink)
abbr
area (not representing a hyperlink)
audio
b
base
bdo
blockquote
br
canvas
caption
cite
code
col
colgroup
command
dd
del
dfn
div
dl
dt
em
embed
fieldset
figcaption
figure
form
h1-h6 (that are contained in an hgroup)
head
html
iframe
img (that does not have an empty alt)
ins
kbd
keygen
label
legend
li (that has no ul or ol parent)
link (that does not represent a hyperlink)
map
mark
math
meta
meter
optgroup
option
p
param
pre
q
rp
rt
ruby
samp
