WHATWG is not W3C

W3C dropped the ball (imho) and HTML became stagnant under them, WHATWG 
picked the ball up and rolled with it, creating HTML5.

W3C has since adopted HTML5 which I believe was the right thing for them 
to do, but not *everything* that was in WHATWG's proposal.

I prefer to use the adopted W3C specification for production as I 
consider it to be a relatively stable target to develop for.

Thus I have stopped using hgroup.

That's just my opinion on the matter.
