Error [70]: "end tag for X omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified"

The validator requests an end tag for <br>.

<br> means "break" or newline. It does not make any sense to specify "end of newline". So it is natural to have <br> with no corresponding end tag.

A tag <br> without an end tag is not an error and should not be handled as an error.

In my opinion, this is a bug in the validator.
