Unless we have a very good reason, I don't think we should start placing 
arbitrary restrictions on how elements can be used.  In fact, there's a 
very good reason to allow footers to be used more than once per section, 
as illustrated by the first footer element example in the spec.  I don't 
believe it's a problem for multiple headers either as the sectioning 
algorithm will create implied sections from the headings anyway.
