Despite it is a good idea, I think those elements will be used that much in
the wild, making their creation and adoption a not viable.

Most websites rarely reach to use h5 and h6 headings to display their
content, and if the need goes beyond, generally we see a split to wrappers.
This is even more true with new tags like article, section and aside.

For listings content, nested ordered lists are semantically enough to
describe the hierarchy.
