It's worth noting that in this video Aaron never actually pays any 
attention to the levels. In fact much of the time he stops JAWS before it 
can actually report the level of the heading.

But yes, to support tools that don't yet support <section>, one should use 
<h2>-<h6>. That's why the spec allows this. It was part of the original 
design of <section> and friends, almost 10 years ago now. :-)
