I agree with Anne here, I don't think this is a suitable usage-area for
INS and DEL.
But instead of attaching attributes to the ARTICLE-element, I think I
would have done something like this:

<article>
<p>Original, unmodified content</p>

<edit type="inserted" altered="{datetime type UTC}">
<p>Inserted content</p>
</edit>

<edit type="removed" altered="{datetime type UTC}">>
<p>Removed content</p>
</edit>

<edit type="modified" altered="{datetime type UTC}">
<p>Changed content</p>
</edit>

</article>

Of course, this would break backward-compability...
