Subject:	revert request for

The editor made changes in the conformance ARIA role conformance
requirements on 2011-09-23:

This change contradicts the HTML working group consensus decision:

The  associated bug
simply states:

"it doesn't make sense for <button> to be exposed as a link or radio
button; it would just confuse users told to "click the button" "

no further rationale was provided for the change.

I therefore request a revert of the change.
