I found 8 sites using this doctype. Three of them are broken:

http://www.ascypaa.org/
http://www.extremerestraints.com/
http://www.kk5im.com/

Five of them work equally good:

http://www.diagnostik.pl/
http://www.fcbayernmuenchen-frauenfussball.de/
http://www.sylvansoftware.com/

In the view of a browser vendor, that's -3.

But maybe someone from Mozilla or WebKit could comment? I don't want to 
spam their Bug databases even more.

Some people think WebKit usually changes it's behaviour to fit the 
others. Currently there's no need for them to change.
