Summary of Issue: H69 is beyond requirement
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
H69: Providing heading elements at the beginning of each section of content
http://www.w3.org/TR/2014/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20140408/H69

To meet SC 2.4.1, it is not necessarily required to provide h1-h6 element at the beginning of EACH section of content. The intent of SC 2.4.1 is "to allow people who navigate sequentially through content more direct access to the primary content of the Web page." as described in Understanding WCAG 2.0.

Though H69 can be one of the sufficient techniques, most people are misunderstanding that heading elements must be provided at each section of the page to meet SC 2.4.1.  

Proposed Change:
To clarify this, new HTML technique like "Providing heading elements at the beginning of primary/main content" should be added to the list of sufficient techniques for SC 2.4.1.
