The current idea about it is that we should have the editor core and core plugins using "exclusively" ARIA for accessibility support. All UI elements must be well defined in this sense. We'll still use our customized keyboard focus system though.

We're aware that ARIA is still not fully supported on browsers and screen readers. We still want to have the editor accessible with some old technologies, so additionally we would be having a dedicated plugin for it backwards (hacks) compatibility. This plugin would make the necessary changes to the editor structure to make it accessible on some situations. It should be optional, loaded only when needed.
