This is why we need mfo [1].  What typically happens when we see a  
problem like this is we use sub-optimal markup to avoid the problem  
before it actually occurs in real-world publishing.  I think this is a  
mistake.  Instead, I suggest we use markup that makes sense, and  
address this kind of parsing problem if/when it actually comes up in  
practice, e.g. by applying mfo in parsers.
