Consistency and persistency on Admin side

On WordPress Admin side, the only place you used Heading 2 <h2> is on the title of pages. Like Dashboard, menu, widget, ...

You kept this rule persistent and consistent all other the wordpress.

But since WP 4.4, the wp-admin/widgets.php
All the following converted to <h2>:
div#widgets-left .sidebar-name h2

And also you moved the title of elements from h4 to h3.

This did not happened anywhere else in WordPress 4.4 and it cropts all designs and CSSs prepared for Wp Admin side.

Yes, we can fix it through CSS but I think the persistency and consistency is much more important.

Hi @nadramah,

This change has been made right across the admin area to improve accessibility for users of screen-readers. More information can be found here:

Can you explain a little more about why you think inconsistency has been introduced?
