Comment on WAI-ARIA: Require host languages to define semantics relevant to accessible name and description calculation

Comment on Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA) 1.0

Comment based on Editor's Draft of 16 April 2012, archived at:

ARIA includes an algorithm for calculating accessible names and
descriptions (ยง5.2.7). This algorithm depends on host language
semantics at various points, for example, to determine label
association and tooltips. The host language requirements should
include requirements around defining precisely how host language
features, if any, play a role in the calculation of accessible names
and descriptions: for example what host language features constitute
label association or tooltips for the purpose of this algorithm.
