I've been going through the HSK lists with awk, so I now feel like I can answer...

Question: What are the HSK chengyu (idioms)?

My answer is below.

To my knowledge, there's no HSK5 idioms, except possibly 讨价还价 (to haggle over price), but I don't think that counts. This is not to say there's no requirement to learn idioms for HSK5, but that it's not on the official list.

There's now answers for the HSK2.0 and HSK3.0. Almost all HSK3.0 chengyu (all but the first 8 listed) are for level 7+.
