I've only once needed to markup a heading plus strapline (pre-HTML5), and  
after considering how to do it simply went for  

(I didn't feel that strapline was a heading at all).

But, if you do, in the absence of a dedicated element for it,

<h1>foo <span>strapline</span></h1> would seem to be good; it preserves  
the "headingness" of it, being inside the <h1>, it allows you to style it  
differently, it doesn't abuse the semantics of the <small>.

  And, it's a whole byte shorter!
