Ahhh, I think I see the distinction now.  

____ in breakpage is used to break a single page into two or 
more separately displayed "segments" -- each segment has its 
own url used for display purposes and could potentially be
edited independent of the other segments on the page.

==== in sectionedit is used to break a long displayed page into
individually editable sections, especially for pages that might
not have headings to break it up.  The ==== doesn't change the
display of the page except to the extent that it adds more "edit 
section" links.

The one I need for my application is ____, to break a single
page into separately displayable and editable segments.  I don't
have a lot of need for ====, but will probably find a way to
support it (since it acts the same as headings for most purposes).

Perhaps -- although it may be more generic, since a table
can be ended by things other than a (:tableend:).

But this gives me a lot to go on...
