The first one does not seem to require anything the spec doesn't already

The second is consistent with what I wrote in comment 1. I make no argument
that there are no use cases. My argument is that the use cases are obscure. The
second example here is not common text, it's a very specialised case where the
language itself is being taught.

There are lots of examples of how we don't currently support that kind of
thing. For example, we don't have markup for grammar annotation (no <verb>,
<subject>, <adverbial-clause> elements) which would be very useful for people
teaching French of English. We don't have anything for marking up family trees
or molecular structures, even though that means HTML is deficient for
supporting those use cases (I get at least one person who asks me whether we
can add markup for genealogy every few months, because right now they're stuck
with using bitmaps or abusing tables to convey their data, and that sucks). I
gave other examples in comment 1.
