The <form> element should only map to FORM landmark with restriction of accessible name #106

The following condition should be added for the form element to become a form landmark:

"The form role if the form element has an accessible name. Otherwise, no corresponding role."

This is the similar to the section element becoming a region landmark requirement.

This is important since many frameworks including .NET wrap an entire web page in a FORM element, obviously not very functional as a landmark.

As I commented on the pull request which was merged earlier today, I think some additional changes may be called for: The merged modification does accomplish what is described in the summary for this issue, namely only map named form elements as landmarks (via using the ARIA mappings). BUT they don't state what the mappings should be for form elements without names.
