Yes, there is, but is it really a problem?

All elements in the HTML spec get abused. Will the number of clashes be  
greater than incorrect uses of other elements like <address>, <blockquote>  
or <h1>?
If we defined <example> element, wouldn't it be almost as (un)likely to be  
mis-used as <p class=example>?
