I don't think that that's the suggestion (though I agree that it would
be a possible application of SGML/XML). Rather, the suggestion is
that people may need to encode physical information about a text when
that information is required for useful processing, possibly with a
wide range of XML processing tools. More controversially, you could
say that the formatting information is semantically-significant.
All the best,
