Closing <li> tags are not required by HTML5:

"A li element's end tag may be omitted if the li element is immediately
followed by another li element or if there is no more content in the parent

Nor by HTML4, for that matter.  The spec deliberately uses a mix of styles to
make sure people get that multiple styles are valid (unlike XHTML, which forces
lowercase/closing tags/etc.).
