I'd rather not fiddle with header styles except in the broadest cases (setting
the basic styles for the site). Besides, In the example you cite above they are
not semantically identical, wrapping the content in article and section tags
changes the semantics of the document.

I think it is simplest if an H1 is always larger than an H2.
