While I like the concept of a generic data element, I feel like this would be
confusing given how many other things use the term "data" in html5. There's
already a lot of confusion between microdata and data-* attributes + we have
"datablock" script tags. Also, in all these other cases, the data is not only
non-displayed but non-display-able w/o machine interpretation.

But perhaps instead of a generic data-tag we should be thinking about more
particular data-tags, such as <integer>, <number>, <url>, etc. Or perhaps we
could allow the @type attribute to be used on <span> elements to markup
data-types.
