Hi Pat,
You are right that @section, @subsection and @subsubsection can be reserved for the top level only.
However, @heading, @subheading and @subsubheading are explicitly defined in the documentation as: "You may use the '@heading' command anywhere you wish for a section-style heading that will not appear in the table of contents." This allows for a consistently-formatted heading line anywhere in the document.

I think that the sectionning and headings commands are the only commands
generating underlining.  Maybe in title page too.

I think that we agreed that @*heading commands should only appear at the
top level.  texi2pdf gives the following error message:
./bug_report.texi:109: This command can appear only outside of any
environment,  not in environment @indentedblock.

Do we document that @*heading are only at the toplevel or should I try
to fix the issue?
