For me, most of the time there is not, actually they add overhead IMO (at least for my purposes) so I actually just build meta-form-wrapper helpers that generate generic left_text_area and other methods like it that just add the classes I need for forms and wrap the <section>'s around the generic helpers that Rails already provides. That is, instead of including another dependency that I don't need, but for some people they bring great benefit because they can handle HTML from step 1 to end, I don't like that because I prefer to directly control every bit of output my app makes. Only you can evaluate whether or not they are worth it, it's a battle of your own to fight, I can honestly say I would use them if I actually had a use for them, and many people will agree they have a use for them, but I personally don't have a use for them so I choose not to use them. You have to evaluate that for yourself.
