Hi Maciej,

on february 1st you wrote:

"so far, the editor hasn't resolved the bug yet, and it's been less than 30
days. If the bug gets rejected, or if it sits unaddressed for an overly long
time, it would be fine to escalate it to an issue."

its now april 7th and there has been no action by the editor, so would like
to raise it as a last call issue, any objections?

Lars Gunther provides a good summation of where we are at in regards to
hgroup [1]

I for one think that hgroup is something worth discussing sooner rather than
later, as I believe there is a good chance that  further discussion and
review will lead to a substantive change. Having hgroup as is,  in the HTML5
spec, if indeed it is removed or modified, does no one any favours
especially developers who may use the element.
