Can this statement:

Those objects are called shapes and correspond to a view model in MVC, except that they represent a single part instead of the whole model for the complete view.

be restated to:

...correspond to a ViewModel for an MVC PartialView in that it serves only one segment of the overall page. For example, the page's header (as in banner chrome, not the meta data part) is a shape that's been constructed by the code found within the HeaderDriver

Yes, that sounds about right.
