It would be really helpful to provide a reference to a source when making such statements.

Hi,
I noticed recently that according to the ARIA and HTML mapping tables, the use of aria-level is said to not be allowed on H1 through H6 elements, even though these implicitly map to role="heading".

Since supporting attributes like aria-pressed and aria-haspopup are accepted on other implicit elements like role="button", amongst other implicit role and attribute combinations, why is this one different?
