This would pretty much mean <br> is a real element, not a magic construct. I welcome that line of thought.

It's off-topic but since we deal with <br> here, I urge
browser vendors to fully support ::before and ::after on <br>.
This allows very simple effects like

body[showBRs="true"] br::before {
   content: "\0000b6"; /*  */

and that is important for wysisyg editors.
It also allows line numbering in a context missing element
containers for lines...
