However, for SEO and various other reasons, headings outside the “main content area” should be allowed to skip heading levels.
Can you provide details as to why?
 
One obvious reason is to provide site-wide consistency. If you think the navigation section or the site title is a second or 5th level thing, and make them so in the outline of every page they appear, that seems reasonable given the way we have headings in HTML today (which is an unfortunate accident of ancient web history).
