That doesn't sound correct to me.  If they were all the same we could 
drop <h1> to <h6> and just use <h>.  Section 3.8.6 states: "These 
elements have a rank given by the number in their name.  The h1 element 
is said to have the highest rank, the h6 element has the lowest rank, 
and two elements with the same name have equal rank."
