The resolution states:

    Where an element has role=none or role=presentation and has a
    descendent title or desc element, user agents must ignore the role.

Descendant is not the same as "child." And the language for inclusion
found at
specifically states "child." Is the language in the resolution accurate,
or is it limited to immediate children?
