Role attribute values

Thanks to the hard work of Michael Cooper, the current list of 
ARIA-defined roles is now included in the XHTML vocabulary document at

While doing this, he and I noticed that there is some duplication 
between ARIA-defined roles and XHTML module-defined roles.  This was of 
course unintentional.  My proposal would be that we harmonize these 
lists as soon as possible - preferably by removing any role values that 
the ARIA group thinks are unnecessary.   Since the list came from them 
in the first place, and was just updated by them a few weeks ago, this 
makes the most sense to me.

This is not urgent, and we can update this document as we need to.  But 
I didn't want to lose the thread.  Roland, can you please put this on 
the agenda for next Wednesday?
