If the feature were to be added to Web Apps 2.0 (or other future spec) I
think it would be sensible to limit it to inline, non-interactive,
non-empty elements (e.g. abbr, em, strong, etc.) and a few other
selected elements (e.g. li and td). It should not apply to elements
like col, br, hr, input, select, etc.

The only benefit I'm aware of is the convenience it provides to authors
for hand coding, but that benefit is negligible when you consider the
abilities of many authoring tools these days.
