Two problems:

* While you can get away with this kludge with HTML, you can't with 
arbitrary XML.  I'm seeing a lot of XML processing in practice lately, 
in protocols and data interchange, and have to do similar building of 
XML as I do HTML.

* What about in an attribute list context?  It's the same problem as 
with element content context, but you can't add an HTML parent element 
to kludge a splice of multiple attributes.
