Programming principle: if a piece of data that represents the
*same* external entity appears more than once, it should be
drawn from the same data source. Otherwise you end up with
various parts of the program (web site) out of sync with each
other because someone changes it one place and forgets to
change it in another place...
I'm betting there will be other places where the information
about the (list of) section owners will prove useful, later.
