What we discussed with regard to <small>, can be described as an 
attempt to *add* - eventually “find” - subheading semantics to <small>.

However, there were no recorded result from the discussion. As such, 
Ian’s proposal to explicitly declare <small> as unpermitted for the 
purpose of subheadings, should be uncontroversial. It is worth pointing 
out that he does not say that small is forbidden as child of h1-h6 - he 
only says that it is forbidden for the purpose of subheadings.
