I use <ins> and <del> for editing specs and this is in fact *is* a major
limitations. Speaking briefly: it is not possible to markup editis for
lists (orderd, unordered, definitions) and tables except for replacing
the whole list or table altogether.
I mention lists and tables since I use them often but in general
problematic are any elements that allow only limited subset of children,
thus disallowing <ins> and <del>. May be there should be a separate
model in the spec about edits saying where <ins> and <del> are allowed
in addition to children specified elsewhere.
