I think the text/html flavor of HTML5 should not allow the following 
SGML minimization features (which are theoretically allowed in HTML 4), 
because each of them causes problems in at least one of Opera, Firefox 
and Safari.

  * <>
  * </>
  * tagc omission ie. <foo<bar>...</bar</foo>
  * <foo/bar/
  * attribute name omission (except for the well-known "boolean 
attributes")
