Yeah, so people will be forced to write crap markup:

   <div role=main>

rather than just:


Having said that, most people will probably use some variation of

   <section id=main>
   <article id=main>

which would be wrong.

Given that we cover 4/5 of the authoring practice regarding structuring  
content we should just complete it in my opinion and not leave people  
confused as to what to do.
