Does the new header require a h1.. h6 element as a descendent? (Spec says  
"A header element typically contains the section's heading (an h1–h6  
element or an hgroup element), but can also contain other content, such as  
a table of contents, a search form, or any relevant logos." but  
"typically" doesn't seem to imply that it *must* contain a heading).

I ask as I recently experimentally redesigned by blog to use html5 and  
wanted to give each blog comment a <header> containing the date it was  
submitted and the name of the commenter + URL. That was illegal as there  
was no h1..h6 element.

Is it now legal?
