Why? The closing tag would be ignored by all current browsers,
and they would not render the accompanying text as clickable label,
but that's what you can expect on non-supporting browsers.

Unfortunately the INPUT element is so overloaded that this creates
a lot of other problems, but backwards compatibility isn't one of
them.
