You've obviously had these issues on your mind a long time.
What is the benefit of the @start attribute on the ending tag?
Shouldn't the @end attribute be sufficient. I fear that if you let
HTML authors loose with something like this they'll end up with mis-
matching pairs, and while still able to create those (e.g. two start
tags ending at the same ID; or pointing to non-extant IDs) the surface
area for error is greater if the end tag has to be the inverse of the
start tag too.
