How does the former of these ensure that heading numbering is made
correct?  That is, if I do

    <section>
    <h2>heading</h2>
    <p>para here</p>
        <section>
        <h2>heading</h2>
        <p>para</p>
        </section>
    </section>

it seems to me I should get something like

    N.  heading

    para here

    N.1 heading

    para


I don't see how you'd guarantee that using a form without containment,
because it seems to me that the right numbering for an uncontained
format is ambiguous.

Best,
