will sections then need names, identifiers. surely they will.

<section id="mysection">

reminds me of..

<div id="mysection">

surely you can process that just as easily?

  two different elements with different semantics.
  The features of the href attribute has been extended from xhtml:a to  
  xhtml2:* (all elements)

  > blockcode = pre ... pointless

  pre is about presentation (I will be beaten on this)
  blockcode is about semantics of a block of code.

  I don't like blockcode for other reasons.
  model inline/block is not good for pure semantics elements.

  One of the benefits which is very rarely mentionned. Authoring tools  
  but it might be difficult to handle as Daniel explained.

  Think about an outliner (if you have already used one). When you work  
  with an outliner, you are often reorganizing section of content  
  because of the position of this content in the hierarchy. having a  
  section/h structure helps to keep this without having to each time  
  rename all h1 to h6 tags when moving the content around.

  Though the difficult is how to handle the section/h together. is  
  content authorized in between for example.

  <section heading="">...</section> could have been imagined but it has  
  also other troubles. No links on a part of the heading. no inline  
  elements. etc.
