[OpenLayers-Dev] arbitrary element as marker?

Is it possible to use an arbitrary HTML element (say a div containing
several images) as a marker? My use case is that I have several
different styles of marker images and then some overlay images that
add a numeral or letter on top of the marker. OpenLayers.Marker uses
OpenLayers.Icon, which will only show an single image.
I could put two markers in the same location but that seems horribly
I could also probably use a Point feature and override the styling but
it seems like a lot of effort to get a reasonably simple effect.
If it is not currently possible to do this then I will implement it -
any suggestions? Seems like the simplest method would be to subclass
or modify the Icon class to allow for an arbitrary element.
