Re: [External Sender] multiple navigation landmarks

I wouldn't consider a breadcrumb a navigational element, unless maybe if
all the increments were links.

blogs | fred's blog | fred's thoughts on frogs, and you could activate any
of those to go back up the tree structure. Then maybe it's a navigation.
Sometimes a list of links is just a list of links.
