Indeed, though it is at least honest: it presents a flattened view of a
document as being no more than a sequence of paragraphs, or maybe blocks
would be a better term , rendered in various ways. For some purposes, I
suppose, that is adequate enough. From the point of interchange, at
least it more or less respects the semantics of TEI elements, though it
would be much better if they were <ab> elements.
I'd rather see that than -- say -- locally-invented non-TEI elements
infecting the TEI namespace!
