Because it considers <input> elements inline elements. If you have

  <p>Enter some text <input ...> and some more text <input ...>.</p>

You probably don't want Tidy to output

  <p>Enter some text
  <input ...>
  and some more text
  <input ...>
  .</p>

Because that's aswell "untidier" and even changes how the document gets
rendered since it introduces whitespace between the second <input> and
the ".".
