           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal

ATK has recently gotten a bunch of new roles so that assistive technologies like Orca can provide better support to web content. Unfortunately, many Orca users use the latest Orca on older distros which lack these roles. My choice is to bump the minimum dependencies of Orca, which would require users to update their entire distro or use old/unmaintained versions of Orca, or to find SomeOtherWay(tm). If we expose the element tag name via AtkObject attribute, I can postpone bumping dependencies in Orca. Furthermore, Gecko already exposes element tag names via AtkObject attribute, so our doing so would be consistent with the behavior of the other rendering engine on our platform.
