That reminds me of a problem I had, when I wanted to markup something 
because it was different from the surrounding stuff. But there was no 
appropriate element in (X)HTML. Then I thought that there should be some 
hierarchy of markup element types - from general to specific, so that 
you can markup everything - at least with the most generic element type.
