Let's just leave the sharing out of this. There is no data as to *why* it
is being shared. All that is is a red-herring to the technical discussion.

Web Components are what you are looking for. Problem is, JS required.
However that isn't a deal-breaker in most projects. You make a custom
element that contains within it the standard paragraphs, headers, asides,
etc. and you can feed data into that. No problem. It is *exactly* what you
are describing except it takes an extra step of making a custom component.

treat web pages as basic documents.

There is nothing restricting these sites from implementing web components
under the hood.

inefficient Javascript libraries.

No problem with web components, they are *built into the browser.*

Semantics are only broken if you implement custom elements in a bad way.
Making your own custom element just to put data into an <h1> is doing it
incorrectly.
