Odd, the DTD at
http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/sgml/dtd.html

<!ELEMENT DIV - - (%flow;)*            -- generic language/style
container -->

seems to say it's a flow element.

That would be fine, but then tspan is the same as text in all but the
transform attribute, which is why I suggested removing it, they don't
carry different semantics.
