The example that first comes into my mind is a discussion forum where 
contributions (which would appear to match the <article> idea) can be 
posted, and are usually posted, without a title of any kind. A 
discussion has a title (subject), but individual contributions are 
basically just text, though in advanced systems they may contain markup.

Oh. That's a different issue. This whole "outline" thing does not look 
very realistic. I have not seen much practical interest in it; the 
"HTML5 Outliner" add-on in Firefox is one of the few signs of interest, 
and it's fairly primitive.
