the spec text for headings h1-h6 is incorrect, there was never any intention in
the change proposal to remove the default mapping for heading or make a
restriction on headings having a role of heading with the apropriate oultine
level.

As pointed out several times the changes for headings are clearly marked in the
spec text provided:

change what you have currently put in to reflect what was intended.
