In book publishing, there is occasionally a need to go beyond a level-6 head (really).

Building on [1] and [2], what is the best (and most future-proof) method for marking up these deeply nested headings in an accessible way? I have seen recommendations to re-use <h6>, but how will AT interpret this?

I have seen the following proposals:

<h6 aria-level="7">
<h6 aria-label="h7">
<p role="heading" aria-level="7">Level 7</p>

I have my reservations about all of them. What do you recommend?
