In LMNL, the tags express not containment but ranges, which may or may
not overlap.  There is no requirement to tag the whole-document range.
Indeed, as soon as you have escaped the LMNL markup start characters 
[ and {, any plain-text document becomes well-formed LMNL.

Original line from The Warrior's Apprentice by Lois McMaster Bujold:
"Only on Barrayar would pulling a loaded needler start a stampede toward one."
English-to-Russian-to-English mangling thereof: "Only on Barrayar you risk to
lose support instead of finding it when you threat with the charged weapon."
