For all intent and purposes, using the site logo as a H1 is not the correct use in the first place, I think.

H1 should be used to describe the topic/subject of the very page, not the site.

For example, on any book page on Amazon, H1 should be used for the book title — not the Amazon logo.
On any auction page on eBay, H1 should be used for the product title, not the eBay logo.
On a page like this one, you’ll see that the topic of the page (“Sass vs Less”) is the H1 title — NOT the “CSS Tricks” title.

If you keep focusing on that, then you won’t even really need to replace it with images, since the page title is usually actual text (unlike the site logo).
