Theoretically users should never know something's been <nowiki>'ed - possibly we could just silently drop them and Parsoid re-applies them automatically on save?

(This assumes we can rely on Parsoid to do this with no or very few false negatives - false positives, which we already have a little of, wouldn't be a huge problems for VE users.)
