> Why should that be done?

take a look at the follwoing section:
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/content-models.html#wai-aria

(note: pointing to whatg as HTML5 has not been updated yet.)

for any element that has a 'Default implied ARIA semantic' (column 2 of table
2) that role is specifically allowed in the 'Restrictions' (column 3 of table
2) so unless there is a reasonable technical epxlanation why h1-h6 should be
different then the default role should also be explicitly allowed on these
elements.
