I think your approach is fundamentally flawed; by treating 
"create contents" as a separate phase from "structure
contents adding [] tags", you are already in danger of
falling into the classic trap of retrofitting markup to
an existing document.  If you regard "create contents"
and "tag contents meaningfully" as indivisible, you will
save yourself a great deal of work and hardship ...
