EDITOR'S RESPONSE: This is an Editor's Response to your comment. If you are
satisfied with this response, please change the state of this bug to CLOSED. If
you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML
Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest
title and text for the tracker issue; or you may create a tracker issue
yourself, if you are able to do so. For more details, see this document:

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: 

<hgroup> is in fact the result of awaiting patterns. The pattern is that people
use <h1> and <h2> as heading and subheading respectively (without meaning
heading and subsection). All <hgroup> does is wrap them up so they don't impact
the outline algorithm.

"Not really liked" isn't a technical argument, so that's not a reason to drop
it.

Having said that, I don't feel particularly strongly attached to having the
<hgroup> element in the HTML5 spec. If you really want me to remove it, please
reopen the bug and I'll take care of it.
