Actually, *tags* are (generally) paired.

The example given there is not about the kind of omission that the  
current HTML 5 draft allows. The current HTML 5 allows tag omission  
only in cases where HTML 4.01 allowed omission as well. Omitting tags  
in the way permitted by HTML 4.01 and the current HTML 5 draft is  
harmless in IE.

If an author doesn't want to remember which tags are permissible and  
safe to omit, it is perfectly OK not to omit any.
