Are you aware that XHTML 1.0 Appendix C  did *not* support that kind of 
flagging? On the contrary! 

Of course, for *end* tags, then XHTML 1.0 validation did of course 
catch such errors. But for  auto-generated elements, like <tbody>, 
then, as noted in the PolyglotRecommendationRationale, XHTML 1.0 
required *XML parsers* to adapt (which is directly opposed to the 
identical DOM principle):
