T164549: OOUIHTMLForm should magically use a IndexLayout (OOUI tabs) and do the right thing on #displaySection() calls was declined;

There aren't many forms large enough to benefit from tabbed navigation, and frankly it is somewhat difficult to implement a generic way to do this with how annoyingly flexible HTMLForm is. When doing it only for a single form like Special:Preferences, we can make it easier by not handling certain corner cases that we know can never occur.

I'm willing to reconsider this if someone provides two more examples of forms where they'd like to use this. But until that happens, I think it would be unwise to spend time on a generic solution handling those corner cases.

@Paladox: Feature requests like this need use cases.

We would like to use it to split up our forms since we are currently in the process of migrating settings to the form (which is quite a lot) and we don't want to show all the settings on the first tab. We want to spread this out.
