Comment (by afercia):

 Thanks @audrasjb! Two minor points left here :)

 - I see we're still using the pattern `<nav role="navigation">`: this is
 historically used to support old assistive technologies: do we still want
 to use the redundant `role`?
 - Is `navigation` a good name for the new HTML5 supported property? As a
 developer, I'm not sure I would understand what it does from its name. No
 clue it relates to some widgets. Naming is hard.
