Personally I liked the idea of hgroup and was sad to see it go. The use case i followed was just what is outlined as seen here http://html5doctor.com/the-hgroup-element/
Per that, it would not have appeared in the 'outline' because it was not starting a new section/subsection and was just a "further description" of the above heading, as i would expect a subheading to act in the first place. Would you not?
