I think it would make a lot of sense to move all the ARIA-related 
requirements (UA and author) to a separate spec. I think the author and UA 
requirements are tightly related, however (e.g. the ARIA spec term 
"strong semantics" implies both), so I don't think it makes sense to move 
one and not the other. I'm happy to work with anyone who is interested in 
doing this work if there is anything I can do to help.
