Should nesting <header>/<footer> be allowed?

Hi,

Issue 273 https://github.com/w3c/html/issues/273 (and the earlier issue 34  
<https://github.com/w3c/html/issues/34> as well) are about <header> and  
<footer> elements.

The current specification prohibits nesting them. Is there any obvious  
reason to prohibit - or allow - this behaviour? Does it have any practical  
impact in implementations, whether browsers, search tools, authoring  
systems, etc?

cheers

Chaals
