Thinking more about it, I prefer to call it "section", because GUI clients can
render sections in tabs, and console clients can draw separator between
sections.  But I don't like to use it for store field lengths or pixel
positioning, because IMHO this is too low-level information, that depends on
too many client-depend factors (screen resolution, font used, etc...).
