I think it might be best to add a very simple body element for the controlled
content, and have the inner paragraphs+tables made available from that. That
would seem to be the most future proof way to go, as we can then add in future
logic / information on the controlled content later, without changing the
behaviour. If we do a simple parsing now and pop the text into the regular
list, then when we come to add proper support we'd risk breaking existing code
by causing the location of the text objects to move in the body hierarchy.
