Make an "Add section" tab for Flow boards
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Use-case: As an editor who is accustomed to wikitext content-model pages, I would like an "Add section" tab at the top of the Flow board, to minimize the differences and new interactions that I have to learn. Clicking it would expand the "Start a new topic" area.

We don't want to bring in the old confusing terminology into Flow. "Add section" was never intended for discussion; it's just a legacy of how old talk pages use standard sections. Most other discussion systems do not use the word "section" like this.

Something like "Create a new topic" might be useful, although it is redundant (I don't consider redundancy inherently bad).

This needs discussion.
