The problem with a div is that it only wraps around blocks.  <hr/>, while
not quite specifying how much of a divider it is, is 'easier' to use as a
generic divider, since it, like <br/>, can be simply inserted into a
stream of elements.

<div> and <span> are about as bland as you can get for semantic division,
and are probably used as presentional helpers.
