I don't think it's any more confusing than <hi> would be. See below...

Try to compare it with <ins> and <del>, it's an element concerned
with editing a document post-authorship, not marking up the
document's inherent structure.
I don't think it would be confusing *provided* it was listed next to
<ins> and <del> on all those ‘Learn HTML5 in 24 Hours’ sites/books/
specifications that people will actually learn about it from. Doing
this would allow 99% of such people to ignore it like they currently
ignore <ins> and <del>, and therefore won't confuse anyone.
