Is Oliver's restating of it:

>     <field-prefix>AAA</field-prefix>
>     <p>BBB</p>

> <p>ZZZ</p> 
Equivalent to Florian's example?

I looked at Florian's example:

> Sample:
> <p>Comments: <text:meta-field-start/>This is a </p>
> <p>two line comment<text:meta-field-end/></p>
And it looks like an unnecessarily complicated markup model. Can say 
exactly what Florian wants to say but it isn't necessary to have 
overlapping paragraph (or other) elements to do it.

Noting that with Oliver's solution, we preserve the ability of an 
application to simply render the text content of a paragraph.

Good question.

Hope you are having a great day!
