I don't see how this would help here. Can you explain?
The issue is that you do have conditional "input text" that depends on
tags around it so you can't necessarily just typeset the text and leave
the tags alone. For a small isolated piece of text that might be true
but any larger portion might rely on the evaluation of tags inside to
typeset itself correctly.
So how would this work?
