This makes no sense. Simplifying, whether you infer an end tag based
on the next tag name or whether it's explicit has no effect on
streamability. "Error handling" does not necessarily make something
non-streamable. Now there are some pathological cases in HTML that
require a tree to do the right thing, but overall it's very much
streamable and because the semantics are closely-coupled can be made
faster than an XML parser.
