See the mappings for presentation in the mapping table, where it states 
how presentation/none applies to tables, lists, etc.:

>  What about an aria- attribute?

 From the ARIA 1.1 specification for role presentation/none:

" ...the user agent MUST always expose global WAI-ARIA states and 
properties to accessibility APIs, even if an element has an explicit or 
inherited role of presentation".

Technically, this isn't a core-aam issue.  What is a core-aam issue is 
that its current wording doesn't clearly reflect the above stricture 
from the spec.  Is the spec going to change in this regard?

We need this for the core-aam work. I put it on yesterday's agenda, but 
we didn't get that far.
