I haven't seen anybody implementing anything like that.  It should be
possible to implement by just putting all the tags in
shr-external-rendering-functions and then doing whatever marking is

But shr doesn't do anything like this itself because I think it won't be
generally that useful, and because it'll make HTML rendering slower, and
it's already slower than it should be.
