FYI, I did some more testing and updated this section in the HTML-AAM: http://rawgit.com/w3c/aria/master/html-aam/html-aam.html#use-of-msaa-variant-by-some-user-agents

FF returns the tag name in MSAA accRole for fewer elements than it used to, but it still does it for a good number of elements. Chrome does it too, but for far fewer elements.
