Confusingly, <h1>, <h2>, <h3>, <h4>, <h5>, <h6>, <h>, <label>, and
<caption> all indicate headings. Could these not all be replaced by one
element, <h>? This can be linked to its section, object, table, or list
either implicitly (for instance being contained by its section) or
explicitly (by an attribute like HTML's "for" or "headers").

PS <th> may be a more complicated case, so I've left it out of this
