Who would this benefit and how? If you write valid HTML, you don't hit this stuff.

I want it to be valid HTML (in standards mode) to supply an end-tag for any element (including <br>) ie if <x/> is valid, then <x></x> is valid.

I would also like it to be valid HTML (in standards mode) to use empty element syntax for any element with empty content (I suspect this is more problematic) ie if <x></x> is valid, then <x/> should be valid.

This would simplify things for authors and for software generating HTML.  It would also facilitate polyglot markup.
