One instance in the spec is this statement within the section on role="presentation":

"... the user agent MUST always expose global WAI-ARIA states and properties to accessibility APIs, even if an element has an explicit or inherited role of presentation."

There are exceptions to this in SVG, apparently. For example, the <mesh> element MUST NOT be exposed even if it has an ARIA global state or property.

Thus, the statement in the spec has to allow for exceptions.

This is addressed by the SVG AAM specification already.
