This proposal removes traces of the hgroup element from the parsing
algorithm. Even if the working group decided to remove or split into
module the hgroup element, it would be entirely inappropriate to
remove it from the parsing algorithm. Browsers have shipped with
hgroup-sensitive parsers and the parsing algorithm is sensitive to
potentially non-conforming elements that have existed at some point in
HTML's history—e.g. plaintext and xmp.
