Topics can cross section boundaries, and sections can cross topic 
boundaries. Hence overlap. e.g.

<topic>
   blah blah blah
   blah blah blah
   blah blah blah
   <section>
   blah blah blah
   blah blah blah
   blah blah blah
     </topic
   blah blah blah
   blah blah blah
   blah blah blah
   blah blah blah
   </section>
