Yeah I think more practical examples with pictures would help a lot.  

Martin Kliehm showed some examples from Flickr in his A List Apart article which helped to tell the story.
http://alistapart.com/articles/waiaria 

One bigger question is how ARIA is referred to.  For example see the following quote from the first paragraph of the intro... "on how to use ARIA to create an accessible Rich Internet Application."  

If you expand ARIA in the quote it'd be... "on how to use [Accessible Rich Internet Applications] to create an accessible Rich Internet Application."  Huh?

It'd make more sense if it was "on how to use ARIA attributes to create an accessible Rich Internet Application."  

It'd be even better to say... "on how to use XHTML states, properties, and roles  to create an accessible Rich Internet Application."  

Is ARIA this spec or is ARIA an Accessible Rich Internet Application?

Apologies, we've had no email or internet sine late yesterday pm until
about two hours ago so I've not had enough time to sit and go through
this (which is annoying as I've been itching to!).

1. Overview http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/aria.php 
I agree with Andrew. There is little here to pull in the non-technical
or people who do not already have a basic understanding of what WAI ARIA
is and who it is for. An introduction in plain English scene setting
would be great.

2. Overview http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/aria.php 
"WAI-ARIA defines how to make more advanced features of dynamic content
and rich Internet applications accessible to people with disabilities."
It would be good to add some further examples of AJAX in action i.e.
AJAX is used in some web based email programs to that you can open in
the same page without the page refreshing or click and drag emails to a
folder...or something. Just to give it colour.
