So <span class="bioTaxonomy"> isn't sufficient how?

The request for a use case isn't merely asking for hypothetical ways in which a subtag might possibly be used, but rather is asking for ways in which it would _likely_ be used. Suggesting CSS styling isn't at all helpful since that can already be done. But even for TTS, you have to provide reason to believe that (a) TTS engines for the particular varieties in question are likely to be created, and (b) that there is a community of users that would likely markup up content so as to take advantage of that.
