nobody else (authors or implementors) appears to have a problem understanding
how it works, if you have a problem, please file a bug against the ARIA spec.
Note: this bug has been escalated as part of issue 129
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/129, so you can argue your case to the
HTML WG, as to why role="presentaion" should not be conforming on list
elements, in the form of a null change proposal.
