Well, a webpage can be viewed as a document but is rarely just a
single file, if you count the css and so on.

Yes of course, that's the use-case I'm thinking about. There is some
feature overlap between kramdown alone for a single page and webgen
obviously, so I was wondering what's needed to ease integration; maybe
just a generic way to syntactically escape from markdown.
