It doesn't really harm anything to leave it, but <hgroup> is being removed from W3's HTML 5.0 CR.

The <h2> around the site slogan is no longer contained with an hgroup, which means its semantics have changed. I think we need to change the h2 to something else.

We used a plain div in 7.x-3.x: http://drupalcode.org/project/zen.git/blob/refs/heads/7.x-3.x:/templates...
