The new <l> element is a logical addition and marks semantic content.
However, in presentation of text there is often the need, for content
reasons,
to start a new line of text that semantically has no ending until the end of
the paragraph.
The intent of such a line break does not correspond to the intention of the
<l> element
and additionally may present rendering problems vis css.

Any human text editor will confirm the need to retain the <br /> element.
