Comment (by walkinonwat3r):

 I can see sense in renaming $allblocks, as I'm not sure that accurately
 describes the purpose of the variable. Something along the lines of
 $exclude_from_paragraph_wrap might be a closer to what it's doing here.

 The filter could also pass an array of HTML tag names, which would allow
 for easier unset() and conditionals. (Then implode the array to form the
 regex string.)

 Is there something in the HTML spec that says non-block elements should be
 wrapped in paragraph tags? If not, then I think that makes the list in
 $allblock a bit of an arbitrary setting, ''especially'' in an HTML5

 Removing the tags after the fact isn't simple. You could regex them out...
 but then you have to account for links around images, bad HTML, and other
 possible edge cases. I've also always read that you shouldn't use regex on
 HTML. I suppose you could hook into the_content and fire up DOMDocument
 every time, but that seems like overkill (and overhead) when the tags can
 be prevented from being added in the first place.
