The very thing that the original poster requested : the ability
to tag closing tags (sorry, unintentional overload of "tag" here)
such that visual inspection would clearly indicate which closing
tag was meant to match which opening tag.  I see no redundancy at
all, but rather (as the original poster suggested) an elegant
enhancement of the language which would benefit those who author
HTML by hand as well as potentially improving the diagnostic
capabilities of the validator (which is why I've cc'd WWW-Validator).
