Overall a very thorough review.

Based on your earlier review of this section, it look like we might  
want to even have two separate elements: header and heading (or h for  
short). I'm still trying to complete my review of this section, but  
I'm wrestling with some of the same issues you raised. There seems to  
be three things that are distinct that get collapsed in this chapter.  
1) headings as the title of a section; 2) header as the leading  
runner of a page/chapter/document, etc  that typically presents  
metadata (contrasted with footer as a trailing runner). 3) head  as a  
place for storing metadata, visibly or invisibly  in this case  
metadata for each article or section.
