Additional observation: Worrying too much about speed of HTML parsing 
may be premature. In the common case, one can rightly expect that the 
majority of input to kramdown will be Markdown, so the impact of 
relatively little, if any, embedded HTML may be negligible.

A typical user of a Markdown processor probably is more concerned that 
it operate correctly, has intuitive behavior, and exposes a reasonable 
feature set, thus allowing the user to avoid HTML for the bulk of 
content composition.
