(assuming <content> -> <main>)

Hmm, that doesn't seem right; presumably the point of such an element 
would be to allow UAs to implement a "skip to main content" feature 
implying that there would be a single element per page. If there is no 
restriction on the number of <main> elements then it seems likely that 
it would be misused as a synonym for <article> which would destroy this 
feature. At most there should be no more than one <main> element per 
sectioning element (similar restrictions should perhaps apply to <header>).
