           Summary: <output> should have no role by default instead of
                    status role
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: mjs@apple.com

<output> should have no role by default instead of the "status" role. Although
this is not clearly stated in the ARIA spec, the "status" role is intended to
be used for status bars, and maps to a "status bar" type role in platform
accessibility APIs.

I reported this issue an ARIA to PFWG:
