ISSUE-630: Address proper nesting of ARIA Landmarks

Address proper nesting of ARIA Landmarks

ARIA 1.0 Authoring Practices
Raised by:
Matthew King
Opened on:
In section step 4 (assign landmark roles to each region). We need further guidance on how to properly nest landmarks. Don't put role="main" regions on a descendant of role="banner".

We actually experienced an issue (crazy as it may seem) where all landmarks for the page were nested under banner.

Related notes:

we would not want main or complementary inside contentinfo or banner. Authors should also not provide site level navigation inside the banner or footer either.
