indeed i don't. clearly i pressed the send key before the text was quite 
ready to be sent. but it isn't just sp+ ... needs to have some other 
bits and pieces of cruft like what you can have inside and between <sp>s

This, I suggest, would be  the kind of extension for which the spanish 
inquisition was famous: <ab> is defined as being "just like a p but 
anonymous" so making it a grouping element would be quite a stretch

this was suggested earlier, and i see the logic, but i am not sure i see 
the need for it. this particular use case is the only persuasive case  
I've come across so far for non-tesselating subdivisions.
