If they were, how should I render a document using SimpleSects with a
resume at the end? I mean, SimpleSects have some default presentation
form in your stylesheets which people rely upon. If they use SimpleSects
in the "main" text and in the resume, I will need to find a way to
render these differently; I don't see one.

Hmm... This is about absolute truth ;) . What does it mean for data to
be inherently tabular? For me, the data proper is tabular if it is 1NF
:) .
