ARIA Progress bars

Hi Everyone,
I've been putting together some specs for semantic progress bars, 
specifically for the Uploader. I've been trying to wrap my head around 
the ARIA specs re: this patricular live region, and this is what I got 
as a starting point (as outlined in the JIRA key FLUID-983)

Static attributes:
• role = progressbar
• valuemax = 100
• valuemin = 0
• live = assertive

Dynamic attributes:
• valuenow (number)
• busy (boolean)

So far, we've had some good JAWS feedback in FF as it reads out the 
valuenow attribute appropriately, but what I was wondering is can we put 
an actual phrase in the attribute? 
(http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-wai-aria-20080204/#valuenow says no, but 
is this for certain?)
Jacob
