I appreciate that you are being flippant, but your suggestion requires 
"forking" a fairly major piece of core code which will obviously now 
have to be maintained from version to version and also it breaks any 
further recipes trying to do the same thing

I hope there might be some happy medium here.  My own opinion is that 
lack of explicit closing of tags just leads to problems down the road 
and lots of complexities parsing things.

However, perhaps:
  >>blah<< continues a div and
  >>!blah<< closes the outermost level and creates a new block at that 

Or something else?

Nested markup would be extremely helpful - it seems like every even 
simple page I write has to jump through hoops just to live without any 
sort of nesting...
