Heading role and level property is mixed in the example, this creates
challenges in scoring we probably do NOT want as it can get complex with
lots of variations.

Also there is a lot to challenge in the scoring assumptions, like:

"Critical failures for the method or specific tests
If headings necessary to locating the content necessary to accomplish the
task or follow the path are not coded as headings, that is a critical
failure "

What if Legends <legend> are used? Makes not using headings NOT a critical
failure (and more of those)

When we say "headings are missing" what do we mean? It will be subjective
when they are needed exactly in all possible scenarios.

In short I think we might need a example completely worked out with
consensus on all aspects in the example to base others on as we might be
missing on validity, consistency and reliability.
