There is no need to. We can simply add to the list when needed.
This is exactly what you are planning to do with style sheets.

Oh please, not this again. Stop trying to invent fundamental tenets

formatting equally as well as content based markup. Trying to claim
SGML as a "content" only language is an outright lie.
