I agree. It’s much like using landmarks that most don’t use correctly. When they do it can be another good way of using web pages.

Sometimes I will notice on a web page that categories are at specific heading levels, like heading level 2

And on those occasions where you have someone who has actually used a hierarchical heading structure correctly, this is an incredibly useful tool.

The above being said, far too often that structure is not used correctly.  But it's worth exploring on a site-by-site or frequently-used-page basis, because once you have discovered those that do use it and use it well, it can be very handy indeed.

It's just a crap shoot as far as what you're going to actually get on any random site.
