Steve,
I’m not completely clear on which parts of 3.2.7 you’re proposing to move.  Which sub-sections are the browser implementation requirements and which sub-sections are the author requirements?  Would native semantics pieces move?
Thanks,
Cynthia

Subject: Proposal: move accessibility implementation requirements from HTML to HTML acc mappings spec

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 3.2.7.
