That might be a bit generous. Until something is in the spec, I would not
consider it safe to use. There was a text role batted around for a while
by the ARIA committee but it was decided to not include it in the spec. It
*might* make it in one day but unless you're on the committee lobbying for
it, there's no guarantee it'll ever be there.
