I agree with Gary, perfect solution. 

But, as I reach to understand, there is -- or there will be -- the need,
as devices and uses of web pages evolve, for thinking on or considering
some new descendant element tags of the ancestor <header>. 

May we extend the definition of the <header> element beyond_ a group of
introductory or navigational aids_? 

The common and ordinary use that developers and publishers do of a
<header> are , for example, to place banners, logos, asides, etcetera,

representations in sectioning elements?
