Actually a tiny number of bytes can add up quickly in large files,
but I to am willing to do without </>. What I would like is to be
able to leave off the end tag entirely and have XML assume that I
wanted to close the immediately proceeding element so that
would be legal. Doing this should be easy assuming that the EMPTY
element problem is dealt with.
