Either way is fine. If it's "top nav" then I probably would put it in the
<header>, though, for what it's worth.
The <header> element is really nothing more than a convenient replacement
for <div class="header">; it doesn't really mean much. If you look at the
examples in the spec, you'll see there's that there's quite a variety: one
example is just a heading with an "Welcome too..." paragraph before it;
one is a heading with some information and navigation links; and the third
has two entire sections (including a <nav> section) inside it.
In fact if you search for "<header" in the one-page spec, you'll find a
number of other examples.

Nope, the <hgroup> element is alive and well. :-)
