The form is divided into sections which describe the information that needs to be captured for people performing a given role in the event. Each form element should contain at least one section element. The <code>section</code> start-tag can specify these 3 optional attributes (although none is required if all your fields are "heading"):
* <code>role</code> : The role that people in this section perform in the event. This value will appear in the "<code>Role</code>" column of events ("EventRoleType").
* <code>type</code> : The type of section. This defines how a section is displayed and people are selected. Allowed values are: '<code>person</code>' for a single person, '<code>multi</code>' for one or more people, or '<code>family</code>' for two people selected by a family.
* <code>title</code> : An optional title which This is used when displaying the section on the form and provides the only way to visually tell multiple sections apart. In a marriage you would have a "Husband", a "Wife" and possibly others such as "Witnesses".
