 right unfortunately this is theoretical only as no AFAIK user agents implement
the outline algorithm, so use of <h1>s only doesn't have the desired effect.

There is advice in the spec about using headings of the appropriate rank:
"Sections may contain headings of any rank, and authors are strongly encouraged
to use headings of the appropriate rank for the section's nesting level."
