The developer should be able to override the ARIA role that has been set in the template. This would be useful for dialog where the better role might be alertdialog depending upon what the dialog is being used for. An alertdialog is similar to a tooltipDialog so another option is to change the role on tooltip dialog to alertdialog.

However, there are also cases where the developer may want to set an explicit role on a contentPane (although this should already work because we currently do not set a role in the contentPane template.

I'll grab this, I thought I fixed it already in #12377 but it's not handling role.
