To my understanding XHTML 2.0 will not have Heading levels per se...Are we
sure we want to pursue "sensible" structural Heading Levels when the whole
paradigm is shifting?

These tests are designed to detect when header levels are skipped in a 
downward sequence. For example:
h1 followed by an h2 is OK
h1 followed by an h3 is bad

Another example:
h3 followed by an h4 is OK
h3 followed by an h5 is bad

Header levels can be skipped in an upward sequence. For example:
h4 followed by an h2 is OK

The group does not have a test for whether the first header in the document 
must be an h1.

There are no tests that check for multiple h1s in the same document.
