   How do you intend to enforce such a rule within the DTD?  AFAIK, 
there is no way to specify different content models based on the 
elements parent.  Basically, for that to work, it would need to have the 
same content model as <div>, which can contain almost anything, but then 
there would no way to restrict the content when <datalist> appeared 
within a <p>, for example.
