Mark, in Email 2.0, you can go into the code and remove the <div without breaking it from the template, that way it will be completely gone, as you said clearing it will still keep the <div in the code. Email 2.0 is very flexible in this way, as 1.0 would have disconnected it from the overall template. Basically Marketo is giving you the flexibility now to do code changes with having a custom template, it takes a bit of getting use to, as it's a change in mindset, but will hopefully allow you to achieve your design you desire. N.B. This only relates to the code within the module, all changes outside of that would break it from the email template.
