Is the lack of marking up subtitles/taglines in HTML 4 such a big problem, that
we should at this stage introduce a solution - any solution - that clearly is
not really liked?

The decision that will be taken now will live on for many, many years to come.
Thus my suggestion really is 3. Drop hgroup altogether and await patterns to
emerge, research those and revisit this for HTML5.1 (or whatever the W3C will
call the next frozen version.)

No browser has yet implemented hgroup in any other way but add some defualt
styling and bragging about it on their web sites. Thus this is not really
costly for implementers.
