Do you accept the notion that ARIA should become syntactically  
obsolete over time so that its semantics are natively available in  
HTML proper? (See http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-pfwg-comments/2009AprJun/0031.html 

If yes, do you think role=article is a legitimate and useful feature  
in ARIA?
