Because there are a _lot_ of side-effects of parsing as regular markup.

e.g.

   <noframes>
     <style>...</style>
     <i> Foo
   </noframes>
   Bar

...the "Bar" musn't be in italics, the <style> block musn't be used, etc. 
There's really a LOT of things to catch.

I agree that we may have to address these anyway for XHTML... If we do, 
then this might resolve itself for HTML.
