4.3.6 The h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, and h6 elements

"Authors might prefer the former style for its terseness, or the latter style
for its convenience in the face of heavy editing; which is best is purely an
issue of preferred authoring style."

4.3.10 Headings and sections

"Authors are also encouraged to explicitly wrap sections in elements of
sectioning content, instead of relying on the implicit sections generated by
having multiple headings in one element of sectioning content."

The first quote implies that there is no suggested style, while the latter
quote prefers one style over the other. I have no idea what the consensus is.
