 Hello @roytanck,
 thanks for reporting this issue. It was discussed today during the weekly
 Accessibility Team's bug scrub.
 The team agrees that the issue should be explored more deeply. It will
 first need some more testing, to understand if the page would benefit by
 the change.
 In particular, since the form doesn't use AJAX, adding a role attribute to
 a field that isn't updated live probably won't do anything, but there
 other changes that might be made, such as adding an explicit link to the
 field related to the error.
 Feel free to add more context, describing more in detail the problem you
 face with the current implementation and what changes with your patch.
