Hey all.

The following is currently in the ARIA spec for role="text":

> The text role can also be used to flatten structural semantics

> EXAMPLE 15
> <div role="text">
>   <p>I</p>
>   <p>like</p>
>   <p>turtles</p>
> </div>

I'm first and foremost curious as to the use case. Beyond that, should
the resulting words be separated by spaces or by new line characters? I
would think the latter.
