"Not in text/html"
 but where?

It would be nice if instead of separate XHTML5 there would be just "X" 
counterparts
of all elements that do not require closing tag. For example:

<ximg src="...">
Ooops, this image is not available
</ximg>

<xoptgroup>...</xoptgroup>
<xframe src="...">Fallback content</xframe>
