ISSUE-560: MSAA/IA2 spec. inconsistent with implementation in FF on aria-activedescendant

MSAA/IA2 spec. inconsistent with implementation in FF on aria-activedescendant

State:
CLOSED
Product:
ARIA 2.0
Raised by:

Description:
In running test case 190, the use of aria-activedescendant on a group role (container) with tabindex

I am looking at the testable statement and the test case: https://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/testharness/testcases/edit/190

and the expected result states that the focus and focusable states should be exposed on the activedescendant. They are not. The UAIG says that the focused sates should be on the activedescenant. From what I recall a focus event would be sent on behalf of the active child but I don't believe any focused or focusable states apply to the active child. This is consistent with the FF implementation yet both the UAIG and the expected result do not match. Please determine what the right expected result is.

Ask rich why this is a problem, when it passes in both IE and FF.
