>   <h1>Second-level heading</h1>
>   <p>text</p>
> </section>

Depending on the level of separation of document, you would end up with a lot
of h1 which would become very difficult to manage. Headings would be much
easier if there were no number associated to it...and beside, if sectioning
allows what you mentioned, then the number don't mean anything anymore since it
relies not on the number but on the section.
