Again, the tooling will fix up the heading depths.  It's not doing that
just yet, but if the plenary keeps being this amount of fascinating to me,

My understanding is that having the heading numbers be set correctly is
nice for folks that like to traverse the document structure using (for
example) a screen reader.
