The bypass blocks technique seems so similar, it seems redundant to work it
up. I'm open to deprecating it. And I think until user agent support gets
better, we could leave it out this round. It's kind of like that heading
technique for 2.4.1 discussion that has occupied a lot of time and debate.
Would like to see if landmarks catch on in the sighted world.

Thanks, David. Also, is Using ARIA landmarks to bypass blocks of content,
and provide programmatic structure
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/Using_ARIA_landmarks_to_bypass_blocks_of_cont
ent,_and_provide_programmatic_structure.> obsolete, or something you will
get to later? I haven't looked closely, but it seemed very similar to this
technique.
