Make inert subtrees and inert attr work for accessibility.

Follow-up to these:

inert elements should be removed from the accessibility tree

… or whatever falls out of this W3C mapping discussion.

Looks like the resolution was to map @inert to aria-hidden, and consider @aria-inert for a later version of ARIA.

PFWG-ISSUE-623, currently on ARIA 1.1.

One thing to consider is that the <dialog> behavior in HTML5 allows ancestor elements of the dialog to be inert, which m ay not map directly to @aria-hidden. In other words, what does it mean to have <dialog (not inert) aria-hidden="false"> element inside an ancestor <div inert (aria-hidden="true")>?
