Yes indeed, there are surely two completely different issues here. The
thread cited above was, in essence, about whether there are reasons for
allowing something like
<div> ... </div>
That is indeed a debatable point of the kind inevitably raised by the
encounter of two elements that, for all their many differences, have in
common that their precise relation to the material embodiment of the text
can be difficult to pin down.
But that's not what Tone wanted to do. Her case was, as David has expressed

None of the arguments adduced in the cited thread in favour of continuing to
outlaw a <pb/> within a <text> but outside a <div> apply here. I agree with
David that if this rather important change is a deliberate decision, then an
explanation would be useful, and if it wasn't deliberate, a correction would
be highly desirable.
