If content does not comply with 1.3 SC 1, it  cannot claim conformance with all level  1 SC
 anyway. I do not see the point of repeating the same SC here under 2.4.
If the SC is met, the content author will merely check off  2.4 SC 1 in the same breath as 
he checks off 1.3 SC 1.
And in order to find content, orient oneself  and be able to navigate, relationships are 
important. For instance,
when lists are nested 2-3 levels in a table of contents, one needs to  be aware of the 
nesting relation in order to perceive  (and by extension, be able to navigate / operate )an 
individual  list item's position in the overall scheme of things.
