The usage for <hgroup> is not necessarily immediately intuitive, but as an
author working on an HTML5 book, I do see the utility of the element. I
would also request a reversion, subject perhaps to a more clear distinction
in the HTML5 working draft outlining the distinction between the use of
<hgroup> as compared to <header> as a non-normative section in the
document.
