I don't think it helps people with learning disabilities. 

Identifying main content as a role (in XHTML 2.0) will probably be more
useful. 

My 2 cents - It may be more useful to have a well marked up page, with
headers and structure.
If you can navigate through the logic and structure of the page then you
can jump or tab through headers to the main content. It also means that
good design and use of the mark up as specified will give you an
accessible page -without any extras.
