Thanks for the pointer (and my apologies for prejudging your
response), but I think there you may have significantly missed the
point. What I am looking for is the DTD fragment which enables your
proposals to be incorporated into HTML. Without this, they are
meaningless, as no-one using serious authoring tools will be able to
use them.

I'd be happy to add your proposals to HTML Pro so that they can be
tested in a real-life authoring situation with tools like
Author/Editor, Emacs psgml-mode, and the SGML versions of Word,
WordPerfect, Frame, etc. But to do this, a copy of the DTD fragment
giving the formal definitions of your proposed elements is essential,
because only this can show how they fit into the scheme of HTML. If
you haven't yet done this as part of your design stage, perhaps you
could let me know off-list.
