Status: Did Not Understand Request
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale:

The spec currently says:

# Sections may contain headings of any rank, but authors are
# strongly encouraged to either use only h1 elements, or to use
# elements of the appropriate rank for the section's nesting level.

The spec then goes into excruciating detail as to how UAs (in particular, ATs)
are to handle any set of headings in a coherent fashion, to address this
particular accessibility problem.

Is the above sufficient, or would you like a more explicit condemnation?

If the latter, would it be sufficient to say that within a sectioning root, no
heading element is allowed to be used that is of higher rank than the first
heading element?
