Add option to define a role attribute for the k-drawer element inside the Drawer component

In a scenario where we want to use the Drawer as a navigational component, the best solution from an accessibility perspective would be to add role="navigation" to the Drawer's items and role="main" to the Drawer's content.

The current implementation of the Drawer provides the option to define the discussed role for its content using the following code:

<DrawerContent role="main">
  <router-view />

In the current implementation of the Drawer, the only way we can define a role for its items is through a Javascript code like the following one.

  .setAttribute('role', 'navigation');

Providing a way to configure the role of the Drawer's items will be a useful feature for the component.
