James Craig's suggestion from github issue #26 [1]:

"
Spec text could be ~"UAs MUST ignore the 'text' role if the element contains any interactive (term to be defined) elements, unless those descendant elements have an explicit role=none and are not focusable." The spec should not limit the role to use on images.
"

This is a duplicate of the static text role and the current branch addresses this text.

http://rawgit.com/w3c/aria/archive-static-and-text-roles/aria/aria.html#static has similar language.

If and when we add this role to the spec, we can finalize the language then.
