Then you are using too many sections.

Code:
<section>
   <h3>Sweet</h3>
   <p>Red apples are sweeter than green ones.</p>
</section>
That's what I mean by sectionitis.

Hmmm... no. And you know it.
I know how it is now, but part of this discussion is about how things could be as this whole update to HTML is being considered. If the makers of HTML decide that something is explicit rather than implicit, that's how it will be. I don't see why they have to invent new elements to make it so.
