Experience suggests that making this kind of apparently-simple syntax change the 
/shouldn't/ break pages inevitably /does/ break pages and so is unacceptable. 
Unless you can present strong evidence to the contrary, it think it's safe to 
assume that "/> generates an empty element in HTML-served-as-text/html" is not 
compatible with "don't break the web".
