There Is No Document Outline Algorithm | Adrian Roselli
The appeal of ignoring heading levels for developers and authors is pretty compelling when you do not know how or where that content will appear (or it appears in many different locations). In particular, the all-<h1> approach appeals to many for its simplicity.

It makes sense why a developer might see this advice, or hear about it through misinformed articles, and never look back. This advice is a free pass. Many content authors don’t even know where their content will appear, making an all-<h1> approach feel like the safe approach.

Unfortunately, despite all the activity in the standards world along with the lack of activity on the part of the browsers, many developers continue to be unaware that this imparts no benefits to users and even harms many of those users.
