[whatwg] [HTML5] Accessibility question

I know the topic has come up a few times, but I'm still wondering if HTML 5 should provide some sort of logic around content that should not be displayed by browsers but should be read by screen readers. Perhaps a "noview" boolean attribute on each element could be used to tell UAs not to render the content but to report it to screen readers? Or maybe a <noview/> element could be used to surround content that shouldn't be displayed but should be accessible to screen readers?

Any thoughts?
