The UK 1st Army HQ begins 1939 in the UK deployment queue. When deployed, it has the Assault advancement even though you can normally only build HQ with Anti-Tank.

Zhukov HQ also have the assault tech. Both of them are special HQs.

For me anyway the tech of HQs is irrelevant. 39 assault tech and 39 anti-tank tech are the same and I always disable repair upgrades for my HQs so they never advance beyond 39 tech (well except for the odd time where I missed disabling one of them). I save my valuable production points for the front line units. If I have to use my HQs to hold the line or my opponent is penetrating far enough into my lines to attack my HQs, than I have probably lost the game anyway.

I figure it's worth upgrading the HQ's just in case. They don't cost that much, and I would hate to lose one, and it's leader. Besides, if you can't afford to upgrade your HQ's you probably lost the game anyway.

Not really, I can live with AT tech '39 for half of the war...because for most countries only affect the HQ's.
Believe me no matter what tech level an HQ can have, if 1 or 2 panzers reach him, he will be obliterated...I know it because that happened to me during a game...several times.

Maybe an incentive to oblige player to upgrade HQ tech ?

Each tech level increase the HQ command range by one hex. And perhaps decrease the current range of HQ tech '39.
Like this, people will invest to upgrade them...

While I agree that a HQ, regardless of it's upgrade, is not likely to survive a determined attack, they'll inflict more damage, and stand a better chance if they are upgraded. HQ's, are clearly not meant to hold the line. They can hold the gap for a an attack or two if there is a breakthrough.

That being said, I have never lost one. I assume the general is KIA if the get eliminated?

The general is returned to the pool, so you can deploy it again...as long as you have enough command points.
