Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have thought about the XHTML 2.0 invention 
of derrived hyrarchie by <section> and <h>.

Up to now the layout is considered as followed:

<h>heading of section_1</h>
<section>
 this is section_1
 <h>heading of section_1.1</h> 
 <section>this is section_1.1</section>
</section> 

My problem is, that there is no way of identifying
header and section in XML ways easily as the 
structure is follow-up instead of nested-in. 

So I would like to ask why it isn't designed 
somehow like the following way:

<section> 
 <shead>heading of section_1</shead>
 <sbody>this is section_1</sbody>
 <section>
  <shead>heading of section_1.1</shead>
  <sbody>this is section_1.1</sbody>
 </section> 
</section> 

--- or alternatively ---- 

<section> 
 <shead>heading of section_1</shead> 
 <sbody>
  this is section_1 
  <section>
   <shead>heading of section_1.1</shead> 
   <sbody>this is section_1.1</sbody> 
  </section>
 </sbody> 
</section>

Up to now I consider such a layout as much
more easily dealable with, e.g. for copying 
processes with the aim of not loosing the 
correspondance of heading and section text.

I would appreciate answer of the developers 
or those who understand the benefits of their
layout to those suggested by me.

In case my suggestion would be considered as
preferable: Who could I address it to? Will 
it automatically be forwarded from this 
discussion group to the XHTML 2.0 developers? 

And finally: How long will it still take to 
bring XHTML to REC status? I suffer to use it.

Thanks a lot in advance for your answers.
