Hi all,

hixie has added some role requirements and restrictions in the whatwg spec
that will  soon come up for cherry picking [1] to the HTML 5.1 spec.
previously we determined that some of the following were not appropriate,
so am asking for ARIA folk to review:

note: implementers MUST map to these roles and authors are restricted to
applying the roles listed for each element (authors can also apply

strong semantics:

table element     grid role
tbody element     rowgroup role
td element     gridcell role
tfoot element     rowgroup role
thead element     rowgroup role
tr element     row role

implicit semantics:

th element     gridcell role     Role must be either columnheader,
rowheader, or gridcell
