Just in case any newcomer to XML-DEV is confused, short end-tags, short
start-tags, no tags at all, etc. are illegal in XML V1.0 and all conforming
parsers will throw well-formedness errors. There is - as far as I know - no
formal or informal note being taken of these discussions for any future
revision of the spec, whether or not such revision exists.
