Hi editors and all other folks,

I saw the SitePoint article "Introducing the New HTML5 <main>
yesterday. Does that mean <main> element has been approved by all editors
of the working group?

However, in spec, it still says that <main> element is not a sectioning
element. That means, in document outline, main content will form another
tree structure instead of appearing under the original website tree
structure. Can we have somebody advise on this? Is there a special
consideration to not making <main> a sectioning element?
