[Bug 12925] in the 1st example 3 'hr' are used like an anonymous 'h#' => 'hr' should move to 4.4. The final 'hr' is of a different kind and wouldn't be there if we had lists ('dl' here) nested inside 'p'. The second example is mostly like the first three 'hr', i.e. a

Only in the second case. Leave this, i.e. the sequence (p, (list | address |
block…)+, hr) making ‘hr’ end an extended paragraph, as the only valid use case
for ‘hr’ and I’m satisfied.

The first and third examples don’t make that clear. Remove them or move them to
4.4 (heading elements) and change "<hr>" to "<h2></h2>" as an example for when
an empty heading is useful.

Tracker issue title: Clear semantics for ‘hr’
Tracker issue text: Current examples suggest ‘hr’ could be used as kind of an
empty or anonymous heading. If that is a valid use case, ‘hr’ should be grouped
with other heading elements, if it is not, the examples should be changed.
