Hi James,

I'm not sure. Having ARIA @role values like this *may* be the correct way
forward (justification: this is about fine-tuning how much information is
announced by screen reader, as it is primarily focused on the accessible
name/"alt text") - the impact on, for example, sighted users with cognitive
issues is likely very close to nil (the personalization effort primarily
driven by the needs of cognitively impaired users).

Before closing this (unless the ARIA WG is vehemently opposed to looking at
this), I'd like to run this up the flag-pole with both APA and the
Personalization TF for their thoughts (both are copied on this response).

My bottom line is that *I* think this is worthy of more discussion, but
perhaps it's a tad early to settle on how to resolve the issue; I do not
see this as either critical or urgent, but certainly important and useful.

Can you wait a week for a response?
