Not exactly. It does indicate that "For all user interface
components... states, properties, and values *that can be set by the
user* can be programmatically set". The current state (as in
aria-current) of the last element in a breadcrumb list cannot be set
by the user, and if not a link (as is optimal), it wouldn't be a "user
interface component" anyway. I don't see how this would be in scope
for this success criterion. In reality, it's hardly worth debating
over something so trivial to the end user experience.
