Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: <hr> doesn't refer to horizontal rules in HTML5 any more. I
intentionally didn't mention the source of the element name to avoid leading
readers into thinking it was intended for visual media only  it applies
equally well to other media, and doesn't have to be rendered as a horizontal
rule at all. Indeed in the HTML5 spec itself it's merely rendered as a gap.
