Accordion: Fix ARIA semantics

If the aria-selected property could be set on expanded items, that would help screen reader users to know which folds were open.

I realize that aria-selected isn't the most semantically accurate ARIA property we could use, and that it would probably be more accurate to use aria-expanded, but expanded doesn't seem to be supported for anything other than treeviews with Jaws 11. So, the choice here is between something that works but is a bit inaccurate, or something that doesn't work but is accurate.
