Yes and validator.nu also seems to implement the W3C specification.
But letís ignore the WHATWG specification and that it is incompatible
but uses the same DOCTYPE identifier a while. This issue will still
need to be worked out for if/when work on HTML 5.1 / HTML 6 /
HTML.next is started and starts and start adding new element, change
conformance requirements etc.
