FWIW, our template in QA used to say "W3C QA - %%title%%", which I
changed to "%%title%% - W3C QA" precisely to respect the rule of putting
the most important information at the front of the title.

That would be mine too; I think using the abbreviation WMVS is likely to
be more confusing than helpful; also, bookmarks are certainly one use
case for good titles, but they're not the only ones; in particular, in
the case of the a validation results page, I don't think they're the
most important one.
