It should probably also be noted that by recommending authors to markup
"main" content using a potentially ambiguous and indeterminate element
instead of a distinct role="main" attribute, this element could harm web
accessibility through the effective obsoletion of deterministic
functionality.

I believe that web accessibility should have one clear voice - you should
explicitly use ARIA for accessibility markup.

Thanks,
