The HTML standard says unknown tags shoul be ignored, so that
extensions such as ruby can be added on top.

it doesn't, but support for <!--comments--> and <?processing
instructions?> is easy enough to add if necessary.
But imported files and exported files are mostly independent. Why would
you want to preserve these? I'm not saying you wouldn't - my dad, for one,
is frustrated by the way MSWord doesn't preserve such info, but I don't
think it's easy without extending AbiWord to an arbitrary-XML editor and I
don't know how possible or wise that is.
One thing I'd like to work on is a 'PHTML' importer/exporter...
