There is a lot of discussion of the text role, with which I still have 
significant concerns, and of text related to aria-hidden. But, is 
consensus on major changes in the spec required before a heart beat 
publication? If so, I think there should be further discussion of the text 
role before publication.

I am also concerned with the accessibility of the spec itself. The respec 
generated html needs quite a bit of work still. Perhaps it is fine to put 
the heart beat out with such issues. I would rather we didn't. But, if it 
is major work to correct them, it may be better to just get a draft out.

Issues:

1. Section heading levels are not correct. Every section, regardless of 
its level, has h2. So for example, sections5, 5.1, and 5.1.1 are all H2 
instead of H2, H3, and H4.

2. the permalinks are included inside the heading tags. It would improve 
readability if they were not a child of the heading.

3. Headings have aria-describedby pointing to the 1st paragraph after the 
heading. I do not see the benefit. The downside is extra verbosity. I 
don't think it models best practice to use aria-describedby in a document 
in this way.

4. All the notes have heading tags. If the notes are going to have 
headings, then I believe they should be a subheading under the heading of 
the section in which they exist. For example, a note in a level 4 section 
like 5.1.1 would have an H5.
