Then people ignore the strict modes and still get to claim that their code
validates.  Instead, HTML5 is trying to only have a strict mode, and people can
either follow recommended coding practices or decide they don't care about the
validator.  If this helps you convince your boss or client that you should
follow better coding practice, or helps convince Blackberry to support CSS,
great.

I don't fully agree with this approach, but it's been discussed a lot and is
unlikely to change.  (I'd have preferred warnings for presentational elements.)
