Regarding the UAIG features at risk [1], there is a test report [2] that 
captures their status, more or less.  The following is a brief 
commentary on those features-at-risk and what the test cases show.

1.  Steps 10 and 11 of Controlling focus with tabindex (Section 4.2) [3]

The relevant test cases are 31 and 32, and the report shows insufficient 
implementations.  I don't anticipate those test cases passing before the 
ARIA 1.1 timeframe.

Status:  remove steps 10 and 11 from the UAIG.

2.  Microsoft UIA columns in various mapping tables.

Since this deals with only UIA, we need a test report that shows all UIA 
tests results.  Unfortunately, I cannot generate such a report, even 
with the full main test report [4].  Note the lack of a UIA only 
column.  I suspect that none of the tests have been run.  Do any testers 
know otherwise?

Status:  Remove the columns from the tables.

3. Menu events (Section 5.8.4) [5]

Relevant tests are 104 - 108.  As of this writing, James is finishing 
testing Safari/AXAPI.  There are likely two implementations.

Status:  Two implementations are likely.  Leave the menu events section 
as is, although revisit on Mon to be certain.

4. Text alternative computation (Section, step 2B [6]

The relevant 54 test cases, and their disposition are [4]:
* 547 - 550: pass,
* 617 - 626: pass,
* 627 - 631: fail (invalid),
* 632 - 635, pass,
* 636: fail (invalid),
* 637 - 646 : pass,
* 727 - 731: pass,
* 733 - 747: pass

With respect to the failing tests, ACTION-1154 recommends removing a 
list from step 2B, namely, 'If the embedded control is a menu, use the 
text alternative of the chosen menu item.'  That's because it would be a 
menu button or popup button, not the menu itself.  Also, test 636 
involves an INPUT type="file", which we decided is also invalid since 
step 2B does not mention this type of INPUT, and there is no common UI 
for file INPUT types among browsers.

Status:  Two implementations were found; step 2B of the text alternative 
computation need not be removed.  Also, since this corresponds to the 
feature at risk in the spec itself [7], these tests satisfy the spec as
