I meant this only in the sense that a many data types will have
difficulty being interpretted meaningfully on mixed content.  For
example, imagine

<A>start<B>middle</B>end</A>

If the data type for A is any numeric data type, a date, or some
pattern, it will be very difficult to meaningfully apply.
