This was our conclusion too. If nothing else it's the 80/20 tradeoff
to say this is how it works ... other cases can be handled by letting
the <X>...</X> elements handle child <A ...> tags as appropriate.
Also, context-specific associations fly in the face of DOM support,
since DOM factories provide no such context for element creation.
One could forgo compatibility with that model; but why?
