The way to please everybody *should be* to keep a separator/sep/transition element in the spec, and let those who prefer to style their section and/or div elements do so.

In a search for common ground, we ought to make sure that examples coming from the WG don't abuse the separator when styling would be more appropriate.

We may even want to suggest some language emphasizing that the separator should be used "as content" in documents, not for general presentational effects.

Which is very difficult by its own. I'm not sure we are able to find  
a solution which might satisfy everyone.
What is a document? Not only something inherited from the Print  
economy, I guess. because that would remove all oral cultures. How do  
we express poems? songs? music? a dialog? an IRC log? etc.

The mission of XHTML and any HTML before is very very very hard to  
achieve.
