I am really longing for "true sectioning". It has already been proposed
many times before, among others by Jukka Korpela [1], and I don't think I
can explain it better myself. So I refer to his comments (I hope he doesn't
mind), originally on the HTML 4.0 draft. He also has many other interesting
thoughts in the same document.

Generally I find the separation between block- and textlevel elements
ungainly. Especially together with a more common use of stylesheets.
