Re: multiple aria-live regions on a single action

If I had multiple live regions and upon one user interaction, the multiple
regions were all updated, I'd expect to hear all the updates if they're all

If "assertive", then all bets are off. "User agents or assistive
technologies *MAY* choose to clear queued changes when an assertive change
occurs" (https://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria/#aria-live). Multiple assertive
regions might trounce on each other. It's undefined what might happen.
