How about defining the contents of the outer-most <section/> as the main 
content, and everything outside it as navigation, footers, etc.?

Example:

<body>
   (navigation lists, etc.)
   <section>
     <h>Main header</h>
     (content, subsections, etc.)
   </section>
   footer, more navigation, etc.
</body>
