Judging from comments on a recent blog post [1] there appears to be some
confusion in the developer community about nav element semantics and what
it does as implemented.

I propose that an explanatory note be added to the current definition text
to make it clear that <nav> does not equal a list
of navigation linksand that if a list of link is what is required then use
a list.
