Some other tools:

* Screen readers
* Mediawiki (the Contents box) + other sites with similar tools
* https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/headingsmap/

None of these implement the HTML5 outline algorithm yet, but for 
sections we have the possibility of aligning old school header-level 
sections with sectioning elements:

<h1 />
<section>
   <h2 />
   ...
   <section>
     <h3 />
     ...
   </section>
</section>

No such backwards compatibility exist for hgroup.
