Is there now a spec that is detailed enough so that Opera and WebKit  
can follow without reverse engineering either IE8 or Firefox and  
interoperate with IE8 and Firefox? That is, what's the status of the

(For those who haven't read the main ARIA spec: The ARIA spec itself  
doesn't cover UA implementation.)
