Steps to reproduce

The property aria-errormessage is not announced when set in Edge with Narrator.

The specification for the property says that it should be exposed as

is [ReferenceElement]

This is exactly what Edge is doing. It would theoritically be possible for Narrator to understand this is an error message that should be read because the last element in ControllerFor is going to the error message is aria-errormessage is set (which you can now from the aria fields).

This also looks like a terribly fragile design. Maybe the ARIA spec should propose a different mapping for this.
