I don't think a class name on a non-heading element is enough to meet 
this SC with our definition of programmatically determined because there 
aren't any user agents (or assistive technologies) that are able to 
identify an element with a randomly selected class name as a heading (or 
any other type of structure).

So, in Jim's example, my feeling is that these items should be marked as 
headings in order to meet the SC.
