criteria 4.1.1 [1] parsing, requires complete start and end tags for all

"In content implemented using markup languages, elements have complete
start and end tags"

in HTML end tags certain end tags are optional [2] and certain elements
have no end tags (<img>, <input> etc.) How do we explain/reconcile this
