TitlePane: JAWS does not speak the title of a locked title pane

Description

Using Firefox 3.5 and JAWS 11, if you tab to the locked title pane in dijit/test/test_TitlePane.html, JAWS does not speak the title.

This is because the title pane is given a role of "presentation" when it is locked. JAWS does not speak items marked as presentation. Need to change the role to heading.

Looks good, i'll check that in, plus the change to remove the tabIndex for that node.

(In [20924]) For non-toggleable TitlePanes, the title should not be in the tab order (since it's just basically a heading, not something the user can click on). Also, setting the title's wairole to "heading", since that's what it most closely resembles.

Fixes #10430: JAWS does not speak the title of a locked title pane.

Fix from Becky and me.
