You are correct that I do not propose changing the current definition/use of
hgroup. My primary intent is to reword the spec to make the definition and
purpose of hgroup clearer to the HTML author. My proposed wording can still use
editing (I noticed a grammar error) to meet this goal. Also, the use of 'alias'
is with respect to the HTML, not of any CSS, associated with the highest h1-h6
element. This needs to be clearly stated. Do you think my wording improves the

I can stay with hgroup, but I proposed hblock due to the discussion in the
