[Bug 11903] i think it'd be more convenient if explicit sections could be children of implicit sections, so you can use implicit sections in general and throw in an <aside> somewhere without breaking the outline. now if you want to throw in an <aside>, you need to ch

that relies on the DOM and skips out on implementing the (rather complex)
outline algorithm can't even get the basics right.

I agree that it is problematic when you mix the two models at a sibling level.
Not sure what can be done about that.
