I'd just check for open tags on form submit, and then bitch and moan about
it if there are any... (e.g. leave it up to the user...)

With a good contains_open_tags() function you'll also be able to accept more
tags like TABLE and DIV (with some attribute filtering) since their (more or
less) unlikely to cause trouble as long as their properly closed...
