The current iteration of the next generation of the OC Manual, intended for V2.0 of OC, does - in fact - discuss the pros and cons using SECTIONs in the PROCEDURE DIVISION. Unfortunately, I cannot publicly share that manual at this time because V2.0 has not been "released" yet.
BTW - OC, at least, is not affected by the "PERFORM section" vs "PERFORM para1 THRU para2" issue - the generated code is identical.
My purely personal preference is to use "PERFORM section" when writing new programs, although I have seen shops that standardized on one or the other. Since much of my work today involves making changes to existing programs rather than coding "from scratch", I simply adopt whatever approach has been used within the program.
