Greetings Shane, I agree that they should be removed from "the heading 
elements" section. Moving them to a "Legacy" module is also a fine thing 
to do, but we should spend a little time figuring out how we should deal 
with legacy items. 

Regards, Roland

section, h, and architectural purity

Since we are now re-focused upon making XHTML 2 be as consistent and 
architecturally pure as possible, I would like to propose that we split 
the h1-h6 elements OUT of the heading elements section (currently 
section 8.5) and move them into the legacy module (or into their own 
"Legacy Headings" module).

I am NOT proposing that we remove these from XHTML 2 entirely - just 
that we isolate them so people who want to (like smart document authors) 
can restrict them from their private markup languages and so that in the 
future we could remove them from XHTML 2 if wanted (e.g. XHTML 3 or 2.1 
or whatever).
