Initial commit: https://github.com/w3c/aria/commit/8a67e6e8e5
Draft: https://rawgit.com/w3c/aria/action-2091/aria/aria.html#separator
Diffs: https://github.com/w3c/aria/compare/action-2091

Changes:
* Add implicit values: valuemin (0), valuemax (100), and valuenow (50).
* Make valuenow required and add an associated "authors MUST".
* Add an "authors SHOULD" regarding valuemin and valuemax.
* Remove aria-expanded as a supported property. If a platform needs
this state, it can be mapped based on the values in the Core AAM.

In addition, there was no statement suggesting that authors SHOULD
provide an accessible name in environments when there is more than
one focusable slider. That statement has been provided as part of
these changes.
