contentPane: enable setting ARIA landmark roles on contentPane

Now that ARIA landmark roles are supported by the screen readers, we need to allow setting them onto contentPanes so developers can mark the sections of the page appropriately: navigation, banner, main, etc.

Previously if there was no WAI role on a contentPane it was given a role of group. Landmark roles were not considered ARIA roles so group was being added to any landmark role that was specified. The screen readers don't work if there are mulitple roles so modify the code to only set the group role if there is not already ANY role on the contentPane.
