Problem:  isolating sections of a page and identifying them as being "about"
the theme of the page.

I know we have meta description, keywords...title... but we don't have a tag
that can be used multiple times within a page to establish what that page is
about.    At least, I haven't been able to find a tag that would handle that. 
It seems that this is a useful tag to enable webmasters to guide search
indexers...  I know it could be abused but really think that the benefits
would far outweigh the negatives.
