Check out

There's a "download the pdf" link under the "RESOURCE INFO" fake heading.

We have a one-page summary of the PDF/UA tags in our online bookstore, https://pubcom.com/books/

I'm on the ISO PDF/UA committee and was in the working group that created the PDF/UA Syntax Guide from the PDF Association.

Sean,
If you look at the ISO 32000-2:2020(E), pages 757-770 give you the specific description of what each tag is used for and how they would be categorized.
At Access2online, we use Section tags (<Sect>) for chapter separation within a <Document> and then an <H1> thru <H6> with <p> tags for the main body structure.
