Degree of details in mappings

Is it useful to identify MSAA+IA2 and ATK/AT-SPI actions, interfaces, and relations in the mappings?

Description:
Quoting Jason Kiss email (https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/member-pf-editors/2014JulSep/0023.html):

The mappings in the old HTML-API-MAP and now HTML-AAM have a degree of detail that isn’t in the CORE-AAM, particularly in the MSAA+IA2 and ATK columns where it explicitly identifies relevant Actions, Interfaces, and Relations. This was largely a result of work by Alexander Surkov from Mozilla, who is obviously well-versed in IA2 and ATK, at least in terms of how Firefox uses them. That addition of detail led us to more explicitly identify Control Types, Control Patterns, and Properties in the UIA column.

How do people feel about this level of detail, or at least this detailed way to represent the component aspects of the mappings themselves? Is it useful, or is it too much or unnecessary? If it is deemed useful, then I think we need to plan a way to incorporate some of this sort of detail into CORE-AAM since, at least in the case of HTML-AAM, where it references the mappings for elements and attributes already dealt with in CORE-AAM, that detail will be lost.
