Sailesh,
Please see inline starting with JN:

JN: This is not strictly true. The spec states 
Within any document or application, the author SHOULD mark no more than one element with the main role.

Note: Because document and application elements can be nested in the DOM, they may have multiple main elements as DOMdescendants, assuming each of those is associated with different document nodes, either by a DOM nesting (e.g., document withindocument) or by use of the aria-owns attribute.


So - if the page has multiple documents (for example a portal type page which can embed content from other sources), then multiple main landmarks are possible.

Regards,
James
