Create sections related to data models in the data class or meet the App Studio Compliance

Hi, in App Studio Compliance landing page, looks like clipboard page is unsupported page context for embedded section (Attached). 

If that is the case, how do we define sections in data classes for reuse and reference them thru page property under pyWorkPage if we need to persist the data?  I feel this may force to create duplicate sections in work class layer.

Pega Customer Service for Healthcare is still using clipboard page as a context on several occasions to reuse sections from data class.  This seems valid & best practice that we used to follow and that i still feel should be advocated by Pega product.

In short, if i ask team to follow App Studio Compliance, we may end up creating duplicate sections in work classes.  On the other hand, if i ask team to create sections related to data models in data class (per best practice), it may violate App Studio Compliance and i'm not sure what its future implication could be. 

Seems like a catch 22.  Please advise which direction should i guide my dev team on the client project.
