Comments on blog posts, or forum posts.

This is a different question, as there are more sectioning elements than just <article> and <section>. <nav>, for example. (See http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/sections.html.)

E.g. if there’s only a single <nav> element in the document, it means that element represents the primary navigation. As such there’s no need to title that section IMHO.
