[whatwg] Is <main> now an official HTML5 element?

Sorry, maybe the markup structure still needs some modifications.

One thing needs to be figured out is that should <aside
role="complementary"> be contained within <main role="main">? Or rather, is
<aside role="complementary"> a supporting content for the entire document
or just for <main role="main">? If it is the latter, then <aside> is fine
being within <main>.

The spec doesn't look like it has clearly defined the relationship between
<main> and <aside>.

Any opinion will be appreciated. Thanks.

Kind Regards,
Ian Yang
