Steve suggested I file a bug about <main>, and as I looked into that, I 
thought it would be nice to know whether that section would be there or 
not.

It makes sense to me. But it is possible htat Ian tries to make it 
"pretty": I think that <main> is possible to use in all the examples in 
that section. That said, that section don't say one can't either.
