No one presented a test suite or implement on hgroup by the Mar 12 deadline.

*** Decision of the Working Group ***

Therefore, the HTML Working Group hereby endorses the request to remove hgroup from the HTML 5.0 CR specification.  The Editors are requested to make this change.

The WG Chairs have also agreed to leave the decision on how to handle hgroup in HTML 5.1 to the Editors.

Steve, per the Decision Policy, the Chairs approve your nomination for 
early removal. Advocates of the feature now have up to 3 months to 
present either a thorough test suite or a reasonably complete 
implementation for hgroup. That would be until March 12, 2013.

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.
