A <lh> (same as a caption to a table) would be semantically connected  
to the list.  That is better semantics than an header tied to  
"everything before the next heading".  Furthermore, I need to front  
load lists and not have them tied to a heading or paragraph (e.g.  
navigation lists).

And, according to the example, it'd be more like (sorry don't have  
the original right now):

    <h1>A list on stuff</h1>
    <ol>
     <li>I, Item</li>
     <li><h2>Item, the God</h2>
      <ol>
       <li>Plot synopsis</li>
       <li>Characters</li>
       <li>Stunning conclusion</li>
      </ol>
     </li>
    </ol>

That isn't as clean as the example originally provided using <lh>.
