[Bug 11557] Authors should not be allowed to specify roles on elements that they already have by default. It's redundant and encourages authors to add roles in cargo-cult fashion on the theory that this will improve their accessibility. See IRC for proof: http://kr

There are many legitimate use cases for adding roles to elements that already
have defaults. The spec is obviously not clear on this as you example
illustrates. What is required is the spec provides clear advice to authors
about when it is needed and when it is not.
