As I said, "a web page" today frequently consists of all sorts of inlined
content piped in from somewhere else, and not attributable to the author of the
page as such. Not all such items are suitable to be marked up as <article>s.

An extremely common use case would be discussion forums, like this very
Bugzilla, or any webboard, or any "comments" section on a blog page, or the
talk pages of any wiki.  Each post is individually attributable, and would
probably be a <div>.  The *initial* post should arguably be an <article>, but
the responses arguably should not be, since they are not independent, but
subordinate to and dependent upon the original "article" (post, announcement,
whatever).

If you re-read my original post now, it should make more sense.
