We're currently working on revising the headings hierarchy guidelines for accessibility-ready themes, as the extremely strict guidelines are very hard to meet consistently.

The strict hierarchy rule is not a WCAG guideline; it is a best practice, and as such should be downgraded in the guidelines to a recommendation, not a requirement.
