due to the negative impact a change on the ARIA role dialog would have on existing implementations, and since there are no known implementations of
HTML5's DIALOG [sic] element, it has been proposed that ARIA keep "d i a l o g"
and that HTML5 change the name of the DIALOG [sic] element;

to this end, a proposal to rename DIALOG to D and to extend the concept to
XHTML2, a new wiki document has been created to explore the issues and
requirements for a D element:

1. Proposal: D - A Single Letter Element Name for Dialogue

2. D - A Single Letter Element Name Discussion Page:
