Hello WebAppSec,

The WebPlat WG would welcome your review of the ARIA in HTML spec [1], 
as we begin preparing for transition to CR.

We've completed the security/privacy questionnaire (answers below).

If possible we'd like your comments before 30th April. If this doesn't 
look feasible though, let me know?

We prefer comments to be filed as issues on Github [1], but feel free to 
send a summary and/or email pointing to the Github issues to 
public-html@w3.org (especially if you have no comments at all).
