The browsers may allow it, but that doesn't make it valid.
In any case, we do have an _internal_ extension point,
org.eclipse.wst.xml.core.modelQueryExtensions, making use of
that could be used to add new definitions for what's valid. This
makes use of a number of _internal_ interfaces, however, and is
unsupported beyond its use in WTP, so you'd be on your own. And be
aware that it's easy to torpedo editor performance by misusing it.

There is more there than just UI. The text between the <span> and
</span> is replaced.
