But use the same <heading> element in all document will force the user to insert a lot of <sections> where’s not really necessary.

And use both versions <h1>, <h2> and <heading> in the same HTML file is more complicated to understand.
The attribute will permite define the level of heading without use a <section> element.

The objective is not let the document without semantic, only give other way to make the right things.

Anyway I thing it’s a good think get a another option to define header level without sections.

I like the syntax

<section>
<heading>
</section>

But depending of document it’s not very easy to understand the levels.
