Uli, there was (at one time) a way to get the UI manager to put  
structured HTML comments around each block so that the result could  
be parsed for exactly this reason.  Not sure if this code is still in  
the current version (Assefa?).  The structure of the code would be  
conducive to this separation so it shouldn't be too hard to accomplish.
