  *   In Tobias’s case using the form element without an explicit aria-labelledby attribute, or without an explicit aria form role attribute, would keep the form as a non-landmark form?

That is correct.

Hi Léonie,

So just to be clear so that I understand, too.
In Tobias’s case using the form element without an explicit aria-labelledby attribute, or without an explicit aria form role attribute, would keep the form as a non-landmark form?

I was looking at the ARIA Landmark exmples<https://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-practices-1.1/examples/landmarks/form.html> for ARIA Practices 1.1

The form role only becomes a landmark when it's explicitly applied. Using the <form> element maps the form role implicitly, but does not turn every form into a landmark. I believe that's what you want in this situation.
