For the working groups consideration:

This specification [1] is an extension to the HTML5 specification. It
defines an attribute (outlinemask) to be used for the identification
of single or multiple subheadings which are marked up using the h1-h6
elements. It also makes the hgroup element obsolete and non
conforming. All normative content in the HTML5 specification, unless
specifically overridden by this specification, is intended to be the
basis for this specification.

A document detailing why the outlinemask attribute [2] has been
defined and why the hgroup element has been obsoleted is also
