<input type=search> has been adopted in HTML5 and has excellent  
graceful degradation behavior. To avoid specifying overlapping  
features for the Web platform, I suggest removing role=search from  
ARIA and saying that an <input type=search> if it has no <form> or its  
<form> if it has one is "The search tool of a web document."
