Re: The importance of landmarks to screen readers?

Agreed, but it's not a violation if that is not followed. If the spec said
"Authors MUST (or SHOULD) specify a complementary landmark outside the main
content...", then *that* would be a violation if not followed.

Like I said, I know my point was nit-picky, but I tend to be pretty literal
about "violations" of spec only if they go against MUST/SHOULD sections.
