Not sure if I am too late for this, but IIRC I suggested this feature a
while ago :).

I'd like to have the sections split by headings, but should we split the
sections by heading level or just by headings? 

by  level headings
!a   S1    S1
a    S1    S1
a    S1    S1
!!b  S1/2  S2
b    S1/2  S2
!c   S3    S3
c    S3    S3

An additional divider would only work for the "headings only" way or we
need to add a "leveled divider" too.

How do other Wikis handle this?
