The HTML5 semantic elements are based on the same logic. If there is a widespread way for web designers to accomplish a task, it should be codified in HTML5. W3C has defined, for example, semantic tags for div tags like header, nav, section, and aside. See http://www.w3.org/TR/html-design-principles/#pave-the-cowpaths.
