The advantage is that it works with things like:

<div style=">"/>

and I thought it was going to save me from writing tag-balancing
code on my own.

But the problem, as I see it, is that it is hopelessly confused by
tag attributes. When it sees:

<div id="bar">

it looks for a closing tag like

</div id="bar">

which is of course silly.
