Subject: <footnote> context

Does anyone have insight into why <footnote> is not allowed inside arbitrary inline elements? Here is a possible use case:


<filename>%WINDIR%<footnote><para>Windows folder</para></footnote>\SYSTEM32\</filename>


I am not necessarily saying that it should be changed. One advantage to keeping identifiers like <filename> "pure" is that it enables easy copy/paste for a consumer of the output. If there were a footnote symbol in there they would have to delete it. But there could be cases where that's not particularly important.


Just opening it up for discussion, I guess.
