I'm not sure I follow. Why isn't <egXML> and <eg>, which are
allowed inside <div> (and inside <p>, and list items, and well
all over the place) satisfactory?
If it is that you want an element to group prose discussion, and
a set of examples, figures, etc.. ... then isn't really what you
are asking for a <div> element? <div>s are generic and can be
used for any subdivision of the text even if that is just an
otherwise undifferentiated grouping of <p>, <egXML>, <eg>,
Or have I missed something?
