Isn’t it more about how a machine would understand it?

e.g. elements within an hgroup are titles/headings and can be parsed as such by a machine to translate the document to another form. (a database object for example) whereas the contents of a header element could be headings, or logos or just metadata about the section… - a bit too vague to machine interpret.

That’s my take on it anyways.
