1. This text seems odd for the Introduction:
"Roles are element types and should not change with time or user
actions. Changing the role on an element from its initial value will
likely be treated by accessibility API events as the removal of the old
element and insertion of a new element with the new role."

2. Is this right? Should it perhaps be "role:requiredState"?
4.2.2. Required States and Properties
role:supportedState

3. "Presentation" role name might be ambiguous (e.g., a powerpoint 
presentation) - maybe "non-informative" would be more clear.

4. An "incomplete" role might also be useful.

5. "8.3.1. Authoring Tools" is a little thin - maybe it might be useful 
to mention supporting toolkits with built-in ARIA support?

6. Do "9.1 Implentations" need to be in the spec?

Cheers,
Jan
