mapping for placeholder - https://w3c.github.io/html-aam/#att-placeholder

placeholder maps to aria-placeholder defined here: http://w3c.github.io/aria/core-aam/core-aam.html#ariaPlaceholder

Note: the current implemented mapping was correct at time, but since then placeholder properties have been added to acc APIs to handle the attribute
