Re: multiple navigation landmarks

Spring-boarding from my previous thread ... I'm in the process of updating our site templates with landmarks and I have a question regarding the quantity of navigation landmarks.

Let me preface by saying that the code surrounding our navigation needs a lot of work which will ultimately greatly reduce issue. That being said, currently, we have our global navigation, subsite navigation, global mobile navigation, and breadcrumb navigation. Is adding the navigation landmark (with appropriate identifiers) appropriate for all four of these or is that too much? I think the desktop/mobile global naves and the subsite naves should all have the role, but I'm on the fence about the breadcrumbs.
