Mixing flows? Like, 'stirring things up'? I believe that, structurally,
paragraphs can have siblings; that a table or a list can be a sibling
of a paragraph because these elements may relate specifically to that
paragraph. But it appears that the rules of the document tree don't
allow such a relationship. Am I wrong?
