Oh, my bad; I think I misread/misunderstood your question.  I had indeed
not tried with C-h, but with other prefixes like C-x and C-c.  With
those prefixes, C-h C-n et al. work fine, but it seems that for C-h it
does not.  Sorry for the misunderstanding.

I agree, the user interface could be better.  I'm just generally happy
to see which-key discussed on emacs-devel for inclusion in GNU Emacs
itself and possibly being enabled out of the box (perhaps as part of one
of the new layers/modules/themes idea of Stefan and others).
