Section 9.6 of the DSSSL standard describes the SGML Property set.
In the PDF version I have, this starts on page 85; the particular definition
for  "must omit end tag" is on page 110, near the bottom:
<propdef rcsnm=momitend appnm="must omit end tag" datatype=boolean
(See page 104 for "omit end tag".)
And 10.1.5, 10.1.6 explain how the "application names" are transformed into
propnames suitable for use in node-property; "must omit end tag" transforms
to 'must-omit-end-tag?, 10.1.6 says either the rcsnm or a symbol or string
representing the property name can be used as the first argument of node-property.

I believe someone has made some HTML pages listing all the properties; I'm
not sure where it is. Much more readable than section 9.6 anyway.
