…section breaks would not exist unless absolutely necessary. The front page would be the first page of Section, and it could be different from the second page onwards. The footers would be consistent, the page numbering would be consistent, weird formatting errors would not arise as a result of scattered unnecessary section breaks everywhere. The only time they are required is when you need to switch from portrait to landscape or back. You wouldn’t see document with a “Section Break – New Page” at the end of the title block, after the contents page, after the introduction, after each chapter.
