Mike, thanks for the feedback.

My concern is that we have conformance requirements that nobody is aware of
because validator.nu isn't checking them - this essentially applies to all
WhatWG-Wiki-based registries. I'd like to find out what's keeping the
validator.nu developers from implementing these checks (well, besides
workload). Is checking these registries more complex than checking IANA
registries?
