Wikipedia ( says:
>Keys may (but need not) be grouped into arbitrarily named sections

But when it's trying to parse file without section header - "MissingSectionHeaderError: File contains no section headers" raised.

Can such check be made optional and switched on for default for example?

I think this is already discussed in Issue 22253.
