Your example boils down to:
<html>
<head><title>ABC</title></head>
<body>
<ol><li >x</li>
</ol
<div>ABC</div>
</body>
</html>

I think that, in </ol <div>, the unknown attribute gets deleted.
Then a dangling </div> is found and eliminated.
Tidy is not a validator per se but tries to fix mistakes as it goes
along. Granted, the error reporting could be more explicit.

Please, fill a bug report re. to error reporting if you wish so.
