Latest version of Change of Content (now called Status Changes)

Here is the text which seemed to have general agreement on today's call. I 
believe the intent is to review tomorrow for CFC.

3.2.6 Status Changes

Status messages can be programmatically determined through role or 
properties such that they can be presented to the user by assistive 
technologies without receiving focus. 

Status messages
Changes in content that are not changes in context, that provide 
information to the user on the success or results of an action, on the 
waiting state of an application, on the progress of a process, or on the 
existence of errors.
