Good question. We're still in the design stage for our second Fluid 
component. But Eli Cochran at UCB has been working on a List Builder 
using jQuery at the moment that we hope to turn into a Fluid component. 
I imagine ARIA metadata isn't far off for it.

Josh Ryan at ASU also took some of the code and interactions from the 
Lightbox and rolled it into his Page Order Helper in Sakai. I can't 
remember if he also added ARIA roles and states as well.
