I don't wish to speak out of turn here as there are many on this list
who know more about this stuff than I do but it seems to me that using
something that specifically says "This is an ARIA attribute" may be
easier to author as it's origin/purpose etc is explicit by the use of
the ARIA prefix. So from that perspective what Mathew suggests;

| <div aria-role="checkbox" aria-checked="true"></div>

looks like a good idea. Or should the ARIA states/properties be authored
as more generic type elements that are hardwired into the spec rather
like the way heading and list elements or proposed elements a la
<figure> currently are?
