There is a large overlap between SC 1.3.1 and SC 2.4.1, since content
structure can be useful for navigation.

However, H50 and H70 are techniques narrowly written to address the
requirement that users be able to skip repeated material. While they
may be examples of meeting SC 1.3.1, we think that adding them to the
SC 1.3.1 sufficient techniques would be confusing. H48: "Using ol, ul
and dl for lists" is a more general list technique that is a
sufficient technique for SC 1.3.1.
