I suppose you mean something like

<p>hello <del><p>foo</p></del> world</p>

The validator does not accept this in HTML5 mode. It says

“End tag p implied, but there were open elements.”

when it encounters the second <p> tag. This is consistent with the HTML5 
syntax rules. The content model of <del> is transparent, which basically 
means that the content allowed is the same as would be allowed if the 
<del> and </del> tags were not there.
