I'd disagree with that statement - http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20081211/G141.html indicates that authors _should_ follow the structure you indicate, but nothing that says that they _must_.  "Should" indicates that it is generally regarded as important, but if you are evaluating a site for WCAG 2.0 there is nothing in the recommendation that says that a page with three H1's would fail, provided that the page structure corresponds to that.

Dear All
in the event of a page having more than 1 h1 tag can i confirm that this breaks guidling  1.3.1 of WCAG 2.0 as this not a meaningful sequence
