contradicts this later MUST:
> WAI-ARIA processing by the user agent MUST NOT interfere with the  
> normal operation of the built-in features of the host language.


Please strike "User agents may refuse to submit the form as long as  
there is an element for which aria-invalid is true." and inform  
authors that the way to set custom validity of a form widget in a way  
that interacts with HTML form submission is the setCustomValidity()  
method:
