* from

When used with ARIA, the 'role' attribute must be one of a specific
set of keywords from the ARIA ontology, and to be most effective,
needs to be used in conjunction with other attributes defined by
ARIA, each with a specific set of corresponding values relevant to
the particular role.

* to

When SVG is used with WAI-ARIA, some of the strings in the list in
the 'role' attribute value may match one or more values designated as
role names in that specification. In this case, WAI-ARIA defines
additional processing for the elements bearing these 'role' values
including requirements for the use of further WAI-ARIA-defined
attributes. Note that this processing does not interfere with host
language processing, but supplements it with regard to the mapping of
content to accessibility APIs.

[suggested hyperlinking: link the first instance of WAI-ARIA in this
paragraph to an entry in the references section which itself leads to
the 'latest version' link on the Technical Reports page. Whatever
you work out with the Comm Team is fine, here.]
