Oops. Right. HTML5 validation could probably be modified to accommodate 
various checks rather flexibly. But since empty p elements are not 
forbidden or even discouraged in HTML5, this would be a new kind of a 
diagnostic - surely not an error, and probably not even a warning (to 
avoid confusion with warnings that directly relate to what HTML5 says).
