I'm not an expert on this, but wikipedia distinguishes them (of course
wikipedia is not absolute truth):
"Lede (pronounced /lid/) is a traditional spelling, from the archaic
English, used to avoid confusion with the printing press type formerly
made from lead or the typographical term 'leading'." 
Anyway, I think this is a sensible idea indeed. I suppose the <lede>
element would be used inside a <p> element, surrounding the first
sentence or so, as a lead/lede is different from (or, as far as I know,
a part of) the first paragraph.
