Regarding ARIA: 
	- The <sh> would have a similar role as the <caption> and <figcaption> 
element - that is, currently, no role (speaking in ARIA terms). 
	- <sh> would caption the content of the <hgroup>.
	- The content of <hgroup> would be the <hx> element. 
	- The <hgroup> element would thus have a role similar to the <figure> 
element - that is, currently, no role (speaking in ARIA terms).

Thus, in contrast to the current content model, no elements would need 
to change their ARIA roles when they occur inside the <hgroup> element.
