What I meant was that you can't derive from the existence of HREF on LI 
(or DT) elements and |role="navigation"| on an ancestor element that 
this is actually the "navigation bar" of the site. At least, not as 
currently defined. And if it was defined in such a way I guess you get 
trouble when you have a small list of links inside |role="navigation"| 
that aren't really part of the "global site navigation".
