I couldn't find a definitive answer to this question by looking at the 4.1.1 text or failures.

If a page has a doctype of XHMTL 1.0 and includes an IMG or INPUT tag that isn't self-closing, does it pass 4.1.1?

<input type="text"> is allowed in HTML
<input type="text" /> would be expected in XHTML

BUT, it's not entirely clear whether
<input type="text"> in XHTML passes.  I don't believe it causes any problems, it's still parseable by user agents, but I'm not sure if it violates
"elements have complete start and end tags, elements are nested according to their specifications,"

Can we clarify this in a technique or failure?
