I don't know because I wasn't around at the start when these classes
were being developed. I'd hazard a guess though - most of the html
tags are geared around form field elements (text, textarea, checkbox
etc) which share alot of common attributes - and are defined in
BaseHandlerTag to avoid repetition. Looking at form tag - it doesn't
share many of those and so it makes no sense to inherit from a base
class that defines them all. The same is true for option tag.
