Re: [External Sender] multiple navigation landmarks

Shouldn’t breadcrumb items always be linked (except for the current page)?
I’d consider a list of links as just a list of links inside the *main-area*
except for TOC.
Outside of the main-area, I’d appreciate each list of links to be a labelled
nav in the template.

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.
