If we have spanning, why do we need to take much care about nested markup?
I feel the behavior I descibed for nested markup is acceptable. It's just
like the case for table.

No worries, it's not that urgent for me. I just want to have some
discussion about this in advance, and hopefully have the issue fixed before
I start implementing this part.

most difficult part to implement in this spec.
