These aren't really "empty tags" but tags for which it is legal (in SGML
but not in XML) to drop the closing tag.  I agree that there should be
such a sgml-unclosed-tags (or some such name) and it could also be used
by a hypothetical indentation algorithm (my hope is that the xml-lite
indentation algorithm can be generalized to support it so that it can
also be used for sgml indentation).

There's no problem with long names.
