Precisely. My point is, you shouldn't make such assumptions about anything
else, either. Not H?'s, P's or BLOCKQUOTE's. The primary sense in which
the semantics of such elements should be defined isn't how they appear or
how they're usually handled, but what they mean. Leave the interpretation
to the UA, in whole.

>My opinion is that H elements shall only be allowed to be the children of

True. However, this only brings us to the question, why on Earth shouldn't
there be more than one parallel SECTION per BODY.
