That was, in fact, the very first solution that we developed. However 
people seemed to find it confusing (iirc they didn't want <header> to 
have anything to do with the outline algorithm). <hgroup> was an attempt 
to fix that. It seems that the design is still considered suboptimal, 
hence ideas like <subhead> and so on.
