Hi all,

I have modified [1] the ARIA mapping for the header and footer elements
after recent face to face discussion with Mozilla acc engineers and NVDA
screen reader implementer who agreed that converging on the webkit
implementation for these elements would be a good thing and lead to
interoperable implementation of accessibility info.

Please review at your leisure, feedback welcome!
