The meaning is context-dependent, just like <h> would be.

Again, the only reason <h1> is being used instead of <h> is to avoid creating a
new tag when we have a perfectly good tag for this already.  Yes, the "1" is
irrelevant; one could have use <hx> or <hy> or <h9> (but not any of the
existing h2-h6, since those mean something different at toplevel from what we
want the "heading" tag to mean.
