Consider this table:


It's tabular data. Each <tbody> represents a different section of the 
table. Each has a subheading <h2>. In other pages of this site, as I 
update them to html5, I've been replacing <h2> with <h1> and putting the 
heading and its related content inside a <section> element. But I cannot 
do that with this (or with other, similar, tables). Any suggestions?
