I strongly dislike <t>-in-<t> to indicate indentation. That breaks the semantics of "this is a paragraph".

That is not what Tony proposed. He said:

I agree that "indented" should not take a numeric or size value, just direction.
A more semantic way to do this is to have a <note> element. It's semantic, and people expect notes to be indented from both margins. The current <note> element only applies in the <front>, but we could simply change the definition to say that in the <front> it keeps its current semantics, but in the <middle> or <back> it acts as a note paragraph.
