Add a section to multiple projects

Our workflow is we have a master release project which is a board. We list all the major sprints and dates for various platforms. Then we have different projects (list-based) for each platform with the specific features/tasks.

It used to be I could cross-reference a section title in a list project to a board project and vice versa. Now I have to create a duplicate task within a section to achieve this. Its really ugly and extra work. Why did you remove the ability to have sections show in multiple projects?
