Remove <br>s for HTML5 galleries

HTML5 support for galleries was introduced recently (r27302). Shortly after that, we decided to seize the opportunity and disable default gallery styles, when a theme supports HTML5 galleries (r27396).

Last week, Nacin wondered if it would make sense to also remove the <br> element, that gets inserted to force line breaks. After we weighed pros and cons I asked some colleagues for their opinion, and they unanimously agreed that we should remove them. So let's do it and improve the markup even further.
