Summary of Issue: Headings at Each Section of Content to Meet SC 2.4.1?
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
I understand that H69 is one of the sufficient techniques to meet SC 2.4.1 and using H69 is not requred to meet SC 2.4.1.

However the sufficient technique for SC 2.4.1 should be like "Providing heading elements at the beginning of main content and repeated sections on multiple web pages." SC 2.4.1 only requires a mechanism "to bypass blocks of content that are repeated on multiple Web pages."

Do we need a heading for a section which is not repeated on multiple web pages in order to meet SC 2.4.1?

H69 looks like a sufficient technique for SC 2.4.10 and requires authors to do more than the requirements of SC 2.4.1. And it could lead them to misunderstanding that each section on a page has to have a heading(h1-h6) in order to meet SC 2.4.1.

Proposed Change:
Move H69 to SC 2.4.10 and modify H69 to clarify the requirement of SC 2.4.1 and add it as a new sufficient technique to SC 2.4.1.
