Agree, this feels more like the domain of a well defined algorithm, 
strapping text-nodes together, stripping certain tags, ending sentences 
on other tags.

Assuming you mean plain text sentences, then it seems almost counter 
intuitive, we start with sentences then add descriptive markup to 
structure them to get HTML. If we want to publish plain text sentences 
then we have text/plain.
