I don't want to do hackery with <div>'s. What I need is to write hr
sometimes, and style it in my CSS so that it looks how I want. I don't
care if it is structural or presentational, it simply serves it's purpose.

You have a great opportunity to stop the progress of the web, because if
   XHTML 2.0 goes out without <hr>, I simply won't use it. And if there
will be more useful features "forgotten" in the spec, nobody will use it.

Think practically, sometimes.
