I guess I don't get it, that is <header> and <hx> within <header>.

You have <header><h3>...</h3></header> constructs. Shouldn't the h3 be  
h1? -the first level in the header (and the section).  It is my  
interpretation that hx levels are independent within each header. So  
all the following h1 elements have the same heading level. Or is the  
Sub-title in the second example a heading level below the Title in  
structure?

<section>
   <header>
     <h1>Section Title</h1>
   <./header>
<section>
<section>
   <header>
     <h1>Another Section Title</h1>
   </header>
</section>

<section>
   <header>
     <h1>Section Title</h1>
   <./header>
   <section>
     <header>
       <h1>Section Sub -title</h1>
     </header>
   </section>
</section>
