My understanding based on the e-mail I used to write the text that's there 
already: that that is the case, yes. However, since I had no normative text 
to reference, I have no idea if what ARIA eventually says will make this 
text work or not, and it might need more changes. (That's why I didn't 
want to do it until I had text to reference, but I realised I was wasting 
more time arguing about whether it was the right time to write this than I 
would waste later fixing the spec once we had the normative text for which 
I was waiting.)

Things that are impossible just take longer.   `._.-(,_..'--(,_..'`-.;.'
