There seems to be a mismatch between the application of ARIA role definitions and HTML5 tagging. Specifically the role “doc-chapter” is defined as "A major thematic section of content in a work.”  The element <body> may receive the attribute epub:type “chapter”  assigning this thematic identifier, however “doc-chapter” is not allowed at that level. Additionally, <article> could serve as a “doc-chapter” since chapters could be considered complete (and be distributed as such), but they cannot carry the identification. Was there a less obvious reason why this mismatch exists?
