[whatwg] ambiguity in <header> definition

spec says "A header element typically contains the section's heading (an
h1–h6 element or an hgroup element), but can also contain other content"
I read this as other meaning "different" - e.g., header doesn't need to
contain an h1–h6 element or an hgroup element. Others I know read "other"
here as meaning "additional" , eg that it should have an h1–h6 element or
an hgroup element but *may* have nav etc.
I believe that the phrase "Contexts in which this element may be used:
Where flow content is expected" means I win the beer and the curry, but
perhaps the language should be tightened? ie ""A header element typically
contains the section's heading (an h1–h6 element or an hgroup element),
but this is not mandatory and may contain content such as navigation, a
search form blah blah"
Hang loose and stay groovy,
