Just curious as to how your above examples would affect SEO. Wouldn't Google
lower your rank (even just slightly) because you're using multiple h1 tags?
Also in this example which header is the most important (for SEO, not just
semantics). Is it the first h3 or the first h1?

<body>
  <h3 />
  <header>
    <h3 />
  </header>
  <article>
    <h2 />
      ...
    <article>
      <h1 />
    </article>
    <hgroup>
      <h1 />
      <h2 />
    </hgroup>
  </article>
  <footer>
    <h3 />
  </footer>
</body>
