While I see your point about multiple buttons (2 in this case) on multi-page forms. The other option is as a design decision you can make "Continue" the more important and highlight it someway that sets it apart. That should reduce accidentally clicking the unintended button. The other case of being related to form sections can be handled by having spacing that is greater than that between sections thereby disassociating it from any particular section.
