Which ARIA role for embedded content


the question came up which ARIA role (if any) should be assigned to content embedded with the <object>, <applet> and <embed> tag and if a type indication with aria-describedby is necessary (For instance, to display a PDF document in-place, the Adobe pdf viewer can be embedded with the object tag).

The ARIA specs and http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/embedded-content-0.html are quiet about that, also http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#annotations-for-assistive-technology-products-aria does not mention anything related.

Any Comments? Is there a common understanding regarding this?
