IMO, the following represents enough evidence to land the patch as soon as the last layout test failure is resolved.

1. Sam Ruby, as Chair declared this passing the HTML WG vote, "With no objections and ample support, this resolution passes."

2. Representatives from another rendering engine vendor (Mozilla) have expressed support for this feature and a willingness to implement it.

	2a. David Bolter, said, "…this [main] is a good thing!"

	2b. Henri Sivonen: "I think we should implement it because…" (Gecko patch pending)

3. And finally, <main> already landed in the HTML 5.1 spec about a week ago.
