I think it's valid to discuss here because this thread started as a request for comments on a patch. 

1. This patch is valid for consideration because there is already an extension specification for HTML 5 that was approved for publish by consensus of the HTML Accessibility Task Force.

2. My feedback to Steve was that I supported the addition but he should include a layout test.

3. The patch discussion, however, was derailed IMO by misinformation about assistive technologies and how they are used in conjunction with WebKit, so I wanted a chance to contradict the misinformation at its source.
