ARIA's role="" attribute (was Re: [Bug 7509] Consider <dl type="dialog"> instead of <dialog>)

You may be confusing ARIA's role="" attribute with the XHTML Role
Attribute Module. They are separate, distinct attributes. Insofar as the
current HTML5 draft goes, role=""'s sole use within HTML is for
specifying ARIA roles on elements.

Microdata or the class="" attribute can both be used to annotate HTML
elements with more specific semantics than their native semantics
