You can't expect authors to do that. <span> and <div> are defined as 
being presentational / not carry any semantics, so you must assume 
that's how they're being used.

Paradoxically, the only authors that would perhaps be willing to do this 
(because it's a technique/mechanism in WCAG 2.x) are exactly the authors 
that would already know to use appropriate semantic markup and not just 
generic <span> or <div> there's really no point?
