Why does CDREAD assign a section number of 1 to shells with no section data?
We read Shell Data from different sources into one database. Some Shells use REAL Constants, some do not.
The Problem is that CDREAD automatically assigns a Section ID of 1 to the shells defined with only real constants.
This causes problems if section ID 1 is subsequently defined. Could 0 be used instead of 1?

This was done to be consistent with ANSYS standards. It was a topic of serious discussion when sections were
introduced and the use of 1 was chosen deliberately [Ref: Feature Request 38646]
