I'm currently undecided, but think that this definitely would benefit from more community discussion on TEI-L.

Actually I could be pesuaded we need both generic and specific elements. The proposal  originated on tei-l  so could be revived there certainly. What do other counsllors think?

I would suggest we test this a bit more widely
than just the Council.  I am not sure everyone out there
would agree with you, gasp.

my argument is purely theoretical - a <block> would
sit alongside <seg> and <ab> to give us an anonymous
container at all three levels.

we could also, of course, allow <div> to non-tessellate but
I think we should make sure paramedics are ready in
Southmoor Rd to assist quickly at your attack of apoplexy
before I suggest that....
