Would it be possible to use, say, server-side parsing to detect
emacspeak/w3 and serve up a version without the />s, as a stopgap
measure?  I don't know enough about emacspeak/w3 to tell you if it
uniquely identifies itself in HTTP headers, though.

(Note:  This isn't an idea situation, but I am all for using, when
possible, server side tweaks to convert valid code into usable code
to account for client limitations or quirks.)
