I hope e.g. Steve finds the right angle to do that. 

My point was to point out that Ian, in another context, considers that an
element can be interactive and yet a header.Hopefully, my input could make Ian
explain wy these roles _cannot_  be used legitimately with these elements.

The obvous use case is when the author wants to present a document. with
several headings, as a outline. I am sure ian understand the usecase, and
wonder how he would solve it.  

Just testing VoiceOver now: it doesn't announce the heading level whenever if
the h1 element has role="button". That to me seems like a drawback of declaring
a h1 to have role="buttton".  Perhaps using the an inner element with
role="button" is a better solution? <h1><span role="button">foo</span></h1>
