If there is consensus on the main ARIA working group to go with the longer
name, I don't have a problem with that.  In the SVG Accessibility Task
Force, we did discuss a number of variations on the name and settled on
graphics-doc as a compromise between concise and comprehensible.

I would ask for a quick resolution, though (i.e., comments on mailing list
this week & discussion at the next ARIA telcon), so we can update all the
specs sooner rather than later, and definitely before the next heartbeat
