Not if the existing page has:

        <h1>Acme Rock Biographies Inc</h1>
        <h2>Paul McCartney</h2>

One application could be for a search engine - "find me pages *about*
Paul McCartney, but don't bother with those that just /mention/ him".

Then again, there's the issue of pages "about Paul McCartney and John
Lennon (and their work together)" where each has equal weight.
