  Grouping and such is a stylistic concern, though - as long as the document expresses a footnote semantic, that's all it has to do.  For the rest, we have a CSS Module that will cover that area, the Generated and Replaced Content module [1].  By an astonishing coincidence, the editor of this module is no less than Ian himself.

  In that case why don't they drop the abbr, dfn, cite, mark etc. elements? They can be styled through CSS as well and be semantically determined by using a class-name just as sugested for footnotes.
