In a different schema lang, one should be able to say
"an a can have tspan children, but only if it has a text ancestor"
Seems to be quite simple to express via XPath. Perhaps Schematron, Relax

Will there be a normative Relax NG schema for 1.2? Or a normative XSD? 
And will there still be a normative DTD?

Today is like christmas; it's really great that you address so many
