No I believe it would be as html5 here (but without the p weirdness html
has) so

child>Can I self close like a HTML <p> element?
<child>Or am I a child of child?</child></p></child></example>

The way Anne has it currently, the stack of open elements is not 
explicitly closed on EOF in the tokenisation state but it is handled in 
the tree building second phase. (That phase also doesn't need to do 
anything explicit at EOF other than stop, you don't need to close the 
nodes as entire nodes were built on seeing the start tag, at EOF You 
just stop adding content and go with what you have.

The output can't correspond to unclosed elements as it is a DOM tree so
when you linearise that to get something to put in email it always ends
up having matching tags. (Currently it may not be well formed due to
issues about legal characters but that's not the issue here I think)
