Separating this from the issue of slides, I've often wanted to have a
generic block element (like <div>), so that I could attach meta-data to
an arbitrary collection of elements. Sometimes for layout purposes,
sometimes not. I think there is semantic value in having a very generic
container that basically says, "These things all go together."
