It's not a valid selector, but it's also a remarkably complex feature for something as limited as "match this family of tagnames".  LIke @tomhodgins says, there's very little call for substring-matching on tagname; insofar as we do want such a thing, prefix/suffix-matching like XPath provides probably provides 90%+ of the desired functionality.

But such a thing wouldn't even work here, because part of the point of a heading-level selector is that it works off of the HTML outline algorithm, not the tagname.
