The -wall option isn't very useful.  Empty closing tags are perfectly
legal.  I don't know if they're good style, but as long as you don't
exaggerate I don't feel that they aren't.  They're not allowed in XML,
though.

The man pages for release 7.1 where built with docbook2X 0.6.1 plus the
patch available on my web page[1].  7.2 is probably going to be the same.
