On Friday you made the above statement.
Several people have made a number of assertions in this thread, but I have
yet to get a direct response to this one simple question, despite the
strength of the original assertion. Jukka made a number of valid points, but
while his opinions on related issues appear to agree with yours, they did not
appear to me to address this point.

I am not advocating that we should stipulate that the site name appears
within an H1 heading, but can anyone give me a valid reason for not doing so,
if the site owner so desires?
