Jim,
Yes, I too rely heavily on heading navigation because it is so easy. And it allows one to quickly gauge the structure of the doc without reading it through. So absence of headings markup is one  of the most frequent accessibility barriers I highlight when it is not used.
Yes, I have seen and used  H<n> markup on quite a few sites  to skip to content. HPR first introduced heading navigation and screen readers followed suit.
