I feel like there's something poetic about a site complaining that people do HTML "wrong" having terrible UX.

It's not terrible UX. Whilst the headings aren't blue, they are underlined, which makes it pretty clear they're links.

I don't love hyperlinks in headings, and would prefer a more explicit link to each good example, tabs for good and bad, or even inline content to show the good examples below the bad, but it's a bit strong to be calling it "terrible".

Nowadays people are pretty slack about links: good UX generally mandates either a different colour to body text, or underlining, or both.

Blue has for many years been the default rather than the standard: people have been heavily deviating from it since the 90s. Underlining tends to be optional if there's some other way of distinguishing links (here there isn't).
