have you got an example? I can see the point, but why stop at <hi>?
they'd like want <table> too. and then it'd be <postscript> quick
as a wink.

I have to admit, I have wanted <hi> inside <eg> in my time.
Leave formula out of it for now, and assume <code> and <eg>
are simply inline/block equivalents, then I think I'd probably
fall on the side of allowing <hi> in. If they are the equivalent
of HTML <tt> and <pre>, those allow markup, I think?
