But if an article is not appropriate a section might be.
I remember some bloke once saying something about a section being a

If I'm understanding it correctly the section element should be used
for content which is not to be syndicated (article would be better in
that case) but which still has a natural heading.

Something like the content for a "mission statement" page?

It has a natural header, does not fit within the definition of an
article, but is still a single blob of content which functions pretty
well stand-alone.
