I'm not sure why header cells exist at present, but the notebook format has
wide enough use that we would have to be a bit careful about removing them.
E.g. we could remove the UI to create new header cells, while leaving the
notebook able to load header cells from existing files. If we wanted to be
a bit pushier, we could convert header cells to markdown cells when the
notebook was loaded, which would pave the way for dropping them from future
versions of the format.
