Currently W3C HTML defines a set of browser implementation requirements in
section 3.2.7 WAI-ARIA [1]. These are an incomplete subset of the
requirements needed to provide interoperable implementations of HTML
features to accessibility APIs.

The HTML wg/PF is working on the HTML Accessibility API Mappings 1.1
specification [2] which is intended to define the mappings of HTML features
to platform accessibility APIs in sufficient detail for implementation of
all HTML features to be  interoperable.

I propose that the current implementation requirements in the HTML spec be
removed and that the HTML Accessibility API Mappings 1.1 specification is
referenced instead.

Note: This does not effect the author conformance requirements in section
