Hopefully none, but given things like table based layout, I think it is 
quite likely that headings could come out in an illogical order (as this 
is the result of styling, albeit not using style sheets, one could argue 
that it should be fixed by styling the ToC).  There might also be weird 
cases - maybe when one is giving examples of heading elements, although 
arguably they should be block quoted.

Basically it is up to proposer to identify cases where proper markup 
will not produce a sensible table of contents.

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
