Lars, with your teaching hat on, would you agree that it would be a good 
thing for your students and colleagues to explicitly close all open, 
non-void elements?

My preference is that we agree that what is served as a representation 
of the resource named by http://google.com/ conforms to the definition 
of HTML5.  We can further agree that it is not a particularly good 
example to learn from, but that it is HTML5 nevertheless, and it is 
appropriate to be served as text/html.

Separately, I believe that we should develop one or more sets of best 
practices.  At least one of those best practices should be targeted 
specifically at the need of students.

I have no problem with the W3C deploying a "goodness checker" and am 
even willing to help code it.
