If it is not clear.

 I am not requesting that the specification of hgroup in regards to  the parsing algorithm or the UA stylesheet be removed from HTML5.

Hi Chairs,

with my a11y hat off,

As per section 13. Removing some at-risk features early in CR [1] of the HTML WG decision policyand its classification as an at risk feature as per Plan 2014, I am requesting that the hgroup [2] element be removed from HTML5 as it does not have even a single reasonably complete implementation.
