[Bug 13960] I am concerned about the way the Article element is used in examples. Doesn't it make sense that Screen Readers will want to use the article element to skip over the HEADER and NAV elements to the main content. Instead of this: <article><heading>...</hea

This has always sat a little off with me too. However my understanding of the
ARTICLE is that it is a chunk of content that can survive on its own without
the remainder of the page, such as in a RSS feed. In this scenario, the HEADER
& FOOTER are there to provide containers for things like author, publish date
and meta content. How would we provide this information semantically without
being able to include these elements?
