I'm not sure about that.  There are a set of aria attributes that can be 
used with any element [1].  An example is aria-owns who purpose is to 
declare an otherwise missed parent/child relationship.  In fact, the 
section in the spec that describes them begins (my emphasis):

Some states and properties are applicable to all host language elements 
*regardless of whether a role is applied*.
