It would be very confusing (IMHO) if the value of a rather innocent looking 
attribute decided how the parser should handle the parsing of the element, 
I think it would be much better if the start tag had a special marker 
somewhere, f.i "*" as in.
<DONT*>&<this tag is not parsed>&</DONT>

But, this is only day-dreaming of course...
