Consider providing in the ARIA section of the spec clear unambigous user firendly linked references to the various WAI-ARIA documents. To make it as easy as possible for authors to learn more about WAI-ARIA.
For example like those provided in this document:
 #1   steve faulkner                                  2010-08-27 14:02:20 +0000 
 Consider adding an introduction to the WAI-ARIA section of the html5 spec talking about what WAI-ARIA is.
see for an example: http://www.paciellogroup.com/blog/misc/HTML5/aria-html5-proposal.html

The plan is to do cross-references to the ARIA spec (indeed the markup is already ready for this); we're just waiting on the tools to be written to make this automatic.

Status: Accepted
Change Description: none yet
Rationale: Marking LATER until the tools are available.

If you meant something other than cross-referencing roles, properties, and states, then please file a separate bug that clearly states the request.

The bug-triage sub-team doesn't consider this to be task force priority as it is just a matter of implementation. Note that ARIA is XML based and has XML features that can be parsed with XPath automatically that go beyond just classes and IDs.
