Ok, I've changed the example a little.

I guess you mean <fieldset>. This is a higher-level grouping, though, the 
equivalent, to a form, of a <section> to a document. Indeed the example 
shows this -- it has a fieldset containing two paragraphs. Both paragraphs 
are part of the "personal information" section, but they are two different 
themes -- name and address respectively.
