Function names in org.el tend to use "heading".

#+begin_src sh
  grep defun org.el | grep heading | wc -l

: 28

#+begin_src sh
  grep defun org.el | grep headline | wc -l

: 3

I think Org uses them interchangeably. One of the three functions above
that use "headline" is `org-find-exact-headline-in-buffer', and the
function immediately below it is `org-find-exact-heading-in-directory'.
