Is it possible to create a custom section?

I have seen that it is possible to define a lot of different custom fields to put in different sections, but I havent been able to find out if it is possible to create your own custom section.

What I'm thinking of specifically is a custom section called 'Test Details' which appears right under the 'Description' section. And then in here we could put a multiline text field where users could fill out Test Steps as a numbered list.

A very basic version of what different plugins provide, for example as shown here:

You have to declare following section in your atlassian-plugin.xml

<!-- Description panel -->
<web-panel key="descriptionmodule" location="atl.jira.view.issue.
left.context" weight="200">
<context-provider class="com.atlassian.jira.plugin.
<resource name="view" type="velocity" location="viewissue/
<label key="common.concepts.description"/>
<condition class="com.atlassian.jira.plugin.webfragment.
conditions.IsFieldHiddenCondition" invert="true">
<param name="field">description</param>
