The challenge will be for the AT discover the meaning/intent of these
extensions.  Either the extension has to be defined with accessibility
meta information built in, and discoverable, or define additional ARIA
roles to describe these new extensions.

As with MathML, specific browser plug-ins are likely needed for many extensions.

Does WAI need Accessibility Guidelines for Distributed Extensibility?
