Then what's the difference between "perfect XML" and "standard (X)HTML"?
Isn't proper XHTML "perfect" enough?

And still, isn't the fact that a new \item appears enough reason to
assume that the previous \item should be closed off? It makes sense to
have some way to close an element explicitly, because there are always
edge cases where the parses needs to guess and guesses wrong. But to
require it everywhere?

Anyway, this discussion is veering off-topic...
