a few questions; will sectioning/structural elements, for example:



<div role="main">

be able to be recognized as equivalent by the information exposed in UIA?
and treated as such by AT if they wish to?

In terms of <header> and <footer> are the semantics being exposed based on
their position in DOM (inside or outside of article/section) as other
browsers do?
