I think expat is doing exactly what you asked it to do: turning all of the
section element's content into <h2>. One way to fix it might be to turn the
title and sg_title attributes into full-blown child elements of the section
element, and enclose them in something like a titleinfo wrapper to which
you can apply your desired class attribute. Something like this:
<sg_title>Organisation of Tissues</sg_title>
This seems to be a good illustration of one argument in favor of using
elements vs. attributes: when you want the content to be easily displayed.
Will be interested to see others' replies, if any.
