They are considered 'functionally identical' in the PDF accessibility
spec (http://alastairc.ac/2007/08/comparing-tagged-pdfs-from-office-and-acrobat/#comment-20280),
and I'm pretty sure the default 'styles' in Word are understood by
screen readers.

Obviously putting a <heading 1> tag in HTML isn't going to work, but
it should be fine in InDesign (which I assume is then producing
PDFs?).

Frankly, if they are using Word styles at all that's a good step in
the right direction.
