There is no way other than aria to programmatically tie an error message 
in a separate HTML element to a form control. So this is not an 
either/or proposition: you use an "old school" solution that shows an 
extra <div> or whatever, but you then tie it to the form control with 
aria. Nobody here said that you should use ARIA *instead of* an 
old-school technique. It's complementary.
