What you seem to be saying is that a typical novel should be represented 
as OL in HTML because the order of the chapters and paragraphs either 
represents the forward progression of time or represents a deliberate 
distortion of that order that is fundamental to the way the story is told.

There might be cases where Hn is reasonable in a list, but I think we 
are talking about chapters, not conventional lists, in the concrete case 
in question.
