Comment (by afercia):

 Some historical background: the missing `h1` was used for the site name in
 all the admin screens, with a link back to the front page. It was removed
 with the refactoring of the admin bar, see how it looked in WordPress 3.0
 in the screenshot below, here displaying also a link to the Privacy
 Settings screen:


 Before than this and for a long time, the header had "<-- Visit Site"
 cuddled next the site name h1 to make it more discoverable. See screenshot
 below (WordPress 2.7):


 Thanks very much to @boren for helping us to rebuild some history.
