i have a question concerning the Success Criterion 2.4.1 "Bypass Blocks".

For this SC there is the Sufficient Technique
"ARIA11: Using ARIA landmarks to identify regions of a page (ARIA)"

And an Advisory Technique
"Using accessibility supported technologies which allow structured 
navigation by user agents and assistive technologies (future link) "

Does HTML5 count as an "accessibility supported technology" in the meantime?
So, would using <main><header> etc be sufficient to support bypassing of 

And what about users, not using AT (just tabbing in the browser)?
Wouldn't it still be necessary to implement skip-links and access-keys 
to make a webpage accessible?

Thank you,
