Hi all,

as per the chairs decision I plan to remove hgroup from the HTML5 spec.
It will be made non conforming, but the implemented parsing rules and user
agent CSS rules will remain (as is usual for obsoleted) elements and add
advice on how to mark up subheadings/subtitles and the like to the common
idioms[2] section

I also plan to do the same as above for HTML 5.1.

By doing this we can start with a levelish playing field and allow
interested parties to gather data/define use cases/ do research and create
extension specs for a feature for identifying subheadings, this may be a
modified hgroup or something else or maybe nobody comes up with a good
enough set of use cases/research/data to meet the high bar we should be
setting for adding an element to HTML and we may decide that providing
advice on how to mark up subheadings with existing elements is appropriate.

I have created a bug
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=21563to track
discussion, please feedback here or there.

with regards
