CheckBox: aria-pressed not a valid attribute

According to the ARIA spec the aria-pressed attribute only applies to HTML elements with role=button The <input> element inside dijit.form.CheckBox? does not have any role in Dojo 1.4.3, the role should be role=checkbox and the attribute should be aria-checked not aria-pressed. In 1.7, aria-pressed is no longer there and has been replaced by aria-checked however the input is still missing the appropriate role=checkbox.

For Dojo 1.7, where does the spec say that input[type=checkbox] requires a role=checkbox? This is implied to screen-readers for native HTML checkboxes.
