I think James N’s topic below will be part of the same discussion as these other two:

- How IndieUI Events and ARIA work together.
- Cynthia’s “Should ARIA Specify UA Behavior” topic. 

Aside from that which is already speced in IndieUI, I think for ARIA 2.0 (not sure if it’s in the 1.1 scope) we should determine how to specify certain ARIA controls as HTML5 “commands” so that—among other benefits—custom ARIA buttons should get key handlers by default. This is the part of the UAIG that has been removed due to lack of implementations. There are currently *zero* implementations in the tested accessible rendering engines, and I think that is because it was specified in such a way that it broke DOM Events, but I think we can fix it and make it work.
