Hey all,


I ran into a confusing bit of spec, so a little help would be appreciated.
First of all:


"The header element must not appear as a descendant of the footer element."


But then:


"When the footer element contains entire sections, they represent
appendices, indexes, long colophons, verbose license agreements, and other
such content."


(so footers can contain sections) ... then:


"A header element is intended to usually contain the section's heading"


(so headers can be used within sections ... which can appear in footers).



Did I miss something or is there some unexplained restraint not in the spec?
