It looks dodgy. The section ‘What is required by WCAG' gives it away. There is no way WCAG ‘requires' the use of nav or role=navigation or role=menu on menus, and role=menu is arguably a bad choice for navigation; the coverage of menu items then only mentions role menuitem which only appropriate for menus with role=menu; the tabbing requirement only applies to nav/ list of links, not constructs with role=menu etc. - its a big jumble of stuff which just wants to impress but is pretty useless seen from close up. I'd stay away from that provider.
