I'm not sure that's an optimal way to interpret or write HTML. Modern
tags like <section> make it easier and more reliable to divide documents
into sections, for both humans and programs. The second approach you
describe seems a little prone to breaking, as it's hard to know the
writer's original intent without explicit <section>'s.

Though, there is a case where a similar approach is necessary: for
example, to fold paragraphs without a closing </p> tag (which is valid
HTML), or list items without </li>, etc. Though it would surprise me if
any HTML folding packages for Emacs supported it ... :-)
