It would be a _massive_ benefit.

The current rules make the grammar for the most used documentation 
language in the world hard to understand and consequently make it hard 
to generate or process. This is a price that you want to be paid 
forever. It is only apparently done for the convenience of reducing 
testing code paths in current browser implementations.

Unless this is changed, people are going to be debugging problems with 
empty elements having been generated using /> and thus not working 
_forever_. This is a real cost that has apparently just been completely 
neglected in the design of html5.
