Reference: string-search for all instances of 'aria:' in
the one-page version of the 15 September 2008 draft
http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-SVGMobile12-20080915/single-page.html

Repair may be implemented by removing the initial substring 'aria:'
from the indicated symbols.

The WAI-ARIA approach for indicating role values that are defined
in the WAI-ARIA spec is that they appear without a colon-ized prefix.

<quote
cite="http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria/#ua_role">

The rules of the host language are used to detect that an element has
an attribute with attribute name of "role" and to identify the
attribute value string for that attribute.
The attribute value string for that attribute is broken into a
sequence of whitespace-free substrings by separating on whitespace.
The substrings are compared in a case-sensitive comparison with all
the names of concrete ARIA roles as defined above.
The first such substring in textual order that matches the name of a
concrete ARIA role is the name of the applicable ARIA role.

</quote>

Now, WAI-ARIA is a work in progress, but that is the current state of
our host-language implementation approach and I don't expect that
part to change.

As these role names appear in an informative capacity in examples, I
don't believe this change affects conformance to the subject spec and
so should not upset the implementation report status.
