Here's the same concept for layout lists (a.k.a. "list-itis") versus semantic lists:  
[`AccessibilityList::determineAccessibilityRole()` in the WebKit source](https://github.com/WebKit/webkit/blob/master/Source/WebCore/accessibility/AccessibilityList.cpp#L127)

"div-itis" is also a thing, though thankfully that doesn't get an important role by default. Other element types that my get this treatment at some point include `<article>`, `<header>`, `<footer>`, etc.
