Re: Agenda: March 17, 2014 WAI-PF ARIA Caucus

I may have to give regrets (GNOME code freeze last-minute stuff). But
then I saw this:

Point of clarification: The above suggests (to me) that we are
considering removing the selected state from menu items. Menu items
(imho) should support the selected state.

When I took a look at the issue, I saw the issue wording is different,
namely: "menuitem role does not allow use of aria-selected". And the
associated test case comment is:

  Yikes. I think this is a spec bug.

  I think we need an ARIA 1.1 issue to allow this.
  <span role="menuitem" aria-selected="true">1</span>

So.... Is the agenda item misworded? If not, I shall come to the meeting
to defend the selected state for menu items. ;)
