That is the standard W3C text for all documents that haven't moved to
the final step of the recommendation chain. The W3C working group
recommends that ARIA is implemented now [1].

Also, ARIA landmark roles have already been implemented in assistive
technology (e.g. the JAWS screen reader) and browser developers have
already implemented other parts of the ARIA spec (notably IE, Firefox
and Opera).

Without more live implementations assistive technology manufacturers
will take a long time to add support. With more live examples users
will get the benefits faster.

The landmark roles appear to be stable and adding them with a script
will not affect other users.
