[MEI-L] <div> in header

Personally, I think of <div> being used to position rendered text like in HTML. So having it in the header would be problematic, since that information is never intended to be "rendered" directly.

This is somewhat related to a recent discussion on GitHub: https://github.com/music-encoding/music-encoding/issues/272

This type of editor requires that the editable content is wrapped in a single element (like <p> or <div>). It is not good at handling mixed content. Of course i could use <p> as the wrapper, but then I would have to have one editor instance for every paragraph, if I want more than one paragraph of text.

Perhaps it would be nice to be able to wrap all non-structured text in a single <div> to separate it from the more structured elements <creation> and <eventList>?
