I was thinking of something like (and using <div> as an example):

<div src="...">
    <param ... />
    <param ... />
    <div src="...">
        <param ... />
        ... And so on...
    </div>
</div>

Isn't this what <object> does in the first place?

But now you are wasting IDs so you can tell documents apart.
