Hi everyone,

It seems totally obvious to me also that <maincontent> would be added to the specification.

I sort oremember reading about rationales for not including it in the first place, but as just about everyone I teach to is asking why it's missing, I feel it would be a natural addition to the new structural elements in HTML5.

/Denis
