Hi John,
I would suggest that currently the common form of syndication is via XML
and therefore the HTML/CSS and therefore applied at the final stage.

I would very much like the HTML to degrade gracefully to a meaningful
hierarchy and I'm still convinced that hgroup is not the way to go.
I believe a better option is Page Titles and page Sub-Titles allowing
the h1-h6 be used for such purpose.

Actually, I have to disagree. One of the main reasons we've been told
the new algorithm is that content that is/was syndicated from elsewhere
could be integrated into a 'blog' or similar aggregate and the semantic
structure would be adjusted to remain meaningful in context. In those
cases, the author of the CSS and the author of the HTML would be
completely different, and quite possibly not even in coordination.
