> Rationale: I don't understand the example, nor why one would need ARIA here.

To complete the example you need to add:

<table aria-describedby="inline_desc">
 <caption>Characteristics with positive and negative sides</caption>
 <thead>

[...]

To the table, which will create a programatic association with the description
contained in the <p>. I hope this is clearer. The reason an example of how ARIA
can be used to describe a table should be included in the HTML5 spec, is
because it is a new method of making tables more accessible and ARIA is now a
full citizen of HTML5.

I hope this is clearer.

<code>
<p>Let us look at both the positive and negative aspects of mood. <span
id=”inline_desc”>In the following table, characteristics are given in the
second
column, with the negative side in the left column and the positive
side in the right column</span>. This will help to give an overview of both
positve and negative expressions of mood.</p>
