The h1 has especial SEO value as it dictates the content of the page. The
whole h1-6 archetype is frought with argument as to how much meaning they
can have - they have no hierarchical validity associations, why are there as
many as/only 6?, etc, etc...

By tradition the company logo or site title is contained within the h1,
although there is also practice of using page-specific, page-distinguishing
headers as the h1, with the generic site title not being of great
importance. w3 says that h1 should to a large degree reflect the title

Multiple h1s are generally believed to be very bad for SEO.
