Yes, or in combination with <header>:

  header:first-of-type { counter-reset: s }
  header { counter-increment: s }
  header:before { content: "Section " counters(s,".") ": " }

  <section>
    <header>Europe</header>
      <section>
        <header>San Marino</header>
        <header>Monaco</header>
      </section>
    </header>
  </section>
