The draft spec at
<http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-holsten-about-uri-scheme-04> says
that about:blank should be a zero-length text/html document, so yes,
it's non-conforming.  Firefox currently returns

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01
Transitional//EN"><html><head><title></title></head><body></body></html>

according to View Source, and this is also non-conforming
(almost-standards doctype).
