This is a Call for Consensus (CfC) on a proposed updated response to
Comment #424 on the ARIA 1.0 specification:


A RESOLUTION for a revised response was recorded during the regular weekly PF
teleconference as logged at:


The proposed updated response is recorded in the following resolution:

RESOLUTION: remove from "select" role: "Authors MUST ensure elements
with role option are contained in an element using one of the
non-abstract child roles of select, such as combobox, listbox, menu,
radiogroup, or tree."

This proposed updated response was first proposed at:


In addition the following clarification is proposed for our updated response by:


The ARIA inheritance model is designed to define how we inherit states and
properties as well as semantics in terms of a definition. Each role defines
the allowable, required owned elements. This is to preserve hierarchy of
aria roles so that we can ensure interoperability with assistive

In the case of menu we specify the following required descendants:

group providing you have a menuitemradio as a child
and/or menuitem
and/or menuitemcheckbox

All web accessibility test tools use this defined hierarchy in the aria
spec. to ensure properly formed user interface controls are produced.

Please reply promptly on list to this email with any objections or concerns. 

Silence will be taken to mean there is no objection, but positive
responses are encouraged.

If there are no objections by close of business Boston Time Friday 31
January, this CfC will carry.
