Summary of Issue: Add a warning about the poor support for this technique
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
It seems pretty important to note that most user agents do not support navigating between headings, and not a single one support navigating frames (H70) or maps (H50). To my understanding that means that in practice none of these techniques can be relied upon except in the extremely rare situation where someone is on a closed network using Opera (which has no screen reader support as far as I’m aware). It seems to me that a warning for this would be in order.

This comment is part of the project for the Accessibility Support Database.
