I do a lot of work on WAI-ARIA for PrimeFaces regarding screen readers,
keyboard and mouse access.
Pass thru attributes should handle some of the cases but the state attributes
like aria-disabled, aria-selected, aria-readonly should be handled by
component. I guess screen readers can also consider disabled attribute is
aria-disabled is not there.
Not sure if from a spec point of view, there should be a concern as WAI-ARIA
is about accessible "rich" internet applications and core JSF component are
basic elements not (tablist, dialog, spinner) so component libraries should
take care of it out of the spec.
One part spec could handle is aria-live related to ajax updates so screen
reader can jump to update part of the page.
