It might also help to use an example that more sighted people would relate
to, because landmark navigation is not commonly understood unless you're
familiar with modern screen readers. Perhaps using a "dialog" instead of
"main" might be better:

> <div role="dialog" aria-labelledby="myDialogHeading">
>     <h1 id="myDialogHeading">Top News Stories </h1>
>     <!-- more dialog contents -->
> </div>


Thoughts?
