Django uses XHTML syntax to render forms as:

<input ... />

Anyway it could render forms in HTML5 syntax without the slash?

Currently, we stick with XHTML syntax, because XHTML should still be HTML5 compliant, while the reverse is not true. If you really want to discuss this, feel free to start a thread on the django-developers mailing list.
