That email thread seems pretty healthy. Is this bug about getting consensus?

David Bolter, 13 Nov 2014, 21:16:02

And by bug I mean action :)

This bug/action is about what the contents of the role mapping table should be for MSAA+IA2 when role="text".

Added IA2_ROLE_TEXTFRAME for MSAA+IA2 to role map entry for role="text".

And Alex's latest, where he asks why the UIA mapping (Text control pattern) is different:

Thread of latest exchange re: Cynthia's explanation of how UIA is going to handle role="text":
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-aria/2016Feb/0032.html

James Teh repilied that IA2's mapping might be better if there is no accessible for the element, but IAccessibleText is implemented:

Cynthia and Alex both followed up. View by thread to follow the discussion.
