This would be very helpful. Also, from within that subset, we may try
and implement the structural tags first and then proceed to formatting
tags like bold, italics etc. This would ensure that the documentation
can be semantically well-formed from the initial stages itself. The
prioritization of tags can be done in collaboration with the docs
team. :)
