I agree, we need to shoot for table semantic gaps with HTML5. We have a
very tight timeline for ARIA 1.1. We must align with HTML 5.1 being done on
December 2016. We are also going to have a separate module on graphics
semantics we need for SVG and Canvas.

Jon Gunderson is supposed to have a proposal for us on Monday on the
additional table semantics.

Tables module?

Sorry I missed this. While you’re right that extended table behaviors
(dataset providers, pivot tables, etc.) will be too big for 1.1, it’s
possible we can get some of the missing HTML table semantics into ARIA 1.1:
Table and cell rows, and possibly the colspan/rowspan semantics.

Potential ARIA 1.1 issues?

		 ISSUE-423: Introduce a table role to be a parent of grid, but

		 ISSUE-2: Rowspan / Colspan

Related, but probably best left for ARIA 2.0:

		 ISSUE-3: Investigate full table support in non HTML base
languages (SVG) and other table/grid semantics that are missing from HTML

		 ISSUE-611: Support Pivot Table functionality in ARIA
