[REVIEW REQUESTED] Action-1725 (was Re: ISSUE-633 Changes ready for final review)

Hey Matt, all.

During today's ARIA concall, the group agreed to accept your articlefeed
proposal (action-1725), though changing the rolename to feed. We did not
get to the grid-related changes you made in that same branch. Therefore,
your grid changes have not been incorporated into master. I have added
the feed role (with minor nit cleanup), along with the associated
changes to aria-busy, which brings me to the following:

PLEASE NOTE: During the meeting, I don't believe we explicitly approved
the changes to aria-busy. However, we discussed them at TPAC and if
memory serves me we agreed they were valid. In addition, they seemed
quite relevant and needed for the new feed role which was approved. So
your humble editor made the executive decision to commit those changes.
This, however, is why I'm asking you all for an explicit review. Please
and thank you. :)

Commit: https://github.com/w3c/aria/commit/fce8f4ac42

Summary of changes:
* Add "feed" role (renamed as per group consensus during today's
  concall)
* Make aria-posinset and aria-setsize supported properties of article
* Changed aria-busy so that it can be applied to all elements rather
  than limited to live regions
* Add normative requirement that authors MUST set aria-busy to true if
  changes to a rendered widget would result in that widget missing
  required owned elements during the update process

Feed role: https://rawgit.com/w3c/aria/master/aria/aria.html#feed
Busy state: https://rawgit.com/w3c/aria/master/aria/aria.html#aria-busy
