I currently have an ordered list that I want to markup using the new HTML 5 attributes. It looks like this:

<ol class="section">
  <li class="article">
    <h2>Article A</h2>
    <p>Some text</p>
  </li>
  <li class="article">
    <h2>Article B</h2>
    <p>Some text</p>
  </li>
  <li class="article">
    <h2>Article C</h2>
    <p>Some text</p>
  </li>
</ol>

It seems the only way to keep the list AND use HTML 5 tags is to add a whole bunch of unnecessary divs:

<section>
  <ol>
    <li>
      <article>
        <h2>Article A</h2>
        <p>Some text</p>
      </article>
    </li>
    <li>
      <article>
        <h2>Article B</h2>
        <p>Some text</p>
      </article>
    </li>
    <li>
      <article>
        <h2>Article C</h2>
        <p>Some text</p>
      </article>
    </li>
  </ol>
</section>

Is there a better way to do this? What are your thoughts?
