No, I said that "In nearly all older browsers, the only difference between <h1>
and <h2> is the CSS that applies to them".  Opera does pay attention to them in
a limited fashion if you turn on a setting.  Other browsers don't at all,
though some extensions that third parties have written do.  

The WCAG guidelines were written before explicit sectioning was added to HTML,
and thus cannot be looked to for advice on how to deal with explicit
sectioning.  In any case, the WCAG Techniques document is not a browser
implementation, it's a set of advice.
