Hi Jirka,

something like both of these have already been proposed amongst a range of
others proposals:

hgroup with the subline element by Steve Faulkner, June 28, 2011
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/hgroup

Drop hgroup and investigate alternatives by Lars Gunther, June 28, 2011
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/dropHgroup


5 bugs at least including what is in the current spec:

1. Drop hgroup, but have an sh child as a child within hn
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=11731

2. Drop hgroup. Have nothing instead. Await a microformat to emerge and
prove its worth.
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=11828 (Filed by me)

3. Keep hgroup, using hn and hn+1 as children. The current proposal in
the spec.

4. Drop hgroup, introduce sh to be put directly beneath an hn

5.drop hgroup and have a role=subheading or subheading attribute
