Bug 1210630 introduces the mapping of a named section element as a role::landmark to comply with the ARIA spec. However, it is more appropriate to return the role::REGION for that, which was already introduced as a mapping for the WAI-ARIA region landmark role when used in conjunction with a labelling attribute. This bug will align the implementation for html:section.
Bug 1210630 introduced a mapping of the html:section element to roles::LANDMARK, however roles::REGION is more appropriate since that is also used by the WAI-ARIA role mapping and contains specific mappings for regions, e. g. on Mac.
