Such tools clearly exist; it's just a web crawler + a html parser + some 
code for querying the resuts and producing a summary. Philip Taylor 
wrote one based on the validator.nu parser for example. I don't know if 
it's currently avaliable for other people to run though.
That would indeed be useful.
