No, by placing a heading in the landmark.

   <div role="navigation">
    <h2>main menu</h2>

I looked briefly at the ARIA spec and didn't find anything about this, so I was probably wrong. However, I think it's the logical thing to use and it would be nice if the association would just work.

(In HTML5, the <nav> element creates a section, and the outline algorithm will associate an <hgroup> or <h1>-<h6> element with the section, if there is one.)
