Sorry for the delay in responding. It looks like the Web Controls spec 
might never actually see the light of day; features like ARIA have been 
developed in the meantime to address much of the same use cases.

I recommend contacting the CSS working group with the idea described 
above, as they might be in a better position to follow up on this.

Thanks for the feedback though; I will keep track of it in case we ever 
do work on the Web Controls spec after all.
