You may want to move this one to the weak list, too.

embed (plug-in should be itself accessible)

The embed element may have a valid role of 'img', or perhaps a little  
more contrived, a 'heading' (think sIFR) with an aria-label or title  
attribute as the text alternative. I'm not saying it's a great idea,  
I'm just saying I've seen web developers do worse, and nothing in the  
spec should forbid the accessibility of valid markup, not even a  
questionable use.
