So the issue is that this statement implies we need to compute level info for the aria-owns case... "If aria-level is not provided or inherited for an element of role treeitem, user agents implementing IAccessible2 or ATK/AT-SPI MUST compute it by following the explicit or computed RELATION_NODE_CHILD_OF relations"

This is Mozilla bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=499917

It is a lot of work for unknown/little gain so shouldn't get priority over other work. I think we could remove the requirement or soften it until there is enough real need.

For now, remove it by commenting it out.

Re-address in Aria 1.1.

Joseph Scheuhammer, 22 Oct 2013, 19:55:41

Commented out the paragraph re: UAs MUST compute aria-level on a treeitem based on aria-owns relationships (for MSAA/IA2 and ATK/AT-SPI).

Revisit in ARIA 1.1 timeframe.

See these minutes for discussion about the status, and moving to 1.1 timeframe:
