The bug-triage sub-team thinks this is important, but does not require the
attention of the whole task force as the ARIA mapping sub-team is able to deal
with it and take the appropriate steps.

@Ian, we believe it's a matter of invisible meta information: in this regard
classes are like @summary. Headings provide a clear structure that is
accessible for screenreaders and visible for all users, therefore they are
preferable. Classes are machine readable, and filters provide viewing modes,
but they are no alternatives to structure.
