In http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD-wai-aria-implementation-20090224/ "alert"  
and "alertdialog" are always exposed in the same way. "menuitemcheckbox"  
and "menuitemradio" are also always exposed in the same way. I haven't  
checked the latter two but the former two are very defined in a very  
different way in the WAI-ARIA draft. If they cannot be implemented in a  
different way this seems unwise because authors will end up using them  
interchangeably and we'll never be able to introduce a real difference in  
the future because that would break existing deployment. I recommend  
having a single role in case AT is not going ot make a difference between  
the two. I.e. keep it realistic ;-)
