I just filed a feature request (#835939) for this.

The current processing of refsection titles uses
the template named 'section.heading' in fo/sections.xsl,
in other words it uses the machinery for section titles.
That's ok, except for the way it computes the section level.

It uses the template 'section.level' in common/common.xsl
to compute the section level of each refsection.
It always assigns a section level 1 to refsect1, level 2 to
refsect2, etc.  Since a refentry can appear inside 
sections as well as other places, the section.level
template should take into account the ancestors of the
refentry to determine its relative location
in the section hierarchy.  

For example, if a refentry appears inside a sect1,
then its NAME title should be format as section
level 2, and any refsect1 should format as section
level 3, etc.  Does that sound right?
