If I understand you right:
THAT would be a great idea, since the markup validator still is  
lacking such parameters, which have arosed a huge and neverending  
discussion on www-validator, the type of whether or whether not to  
implement them:

http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=785
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=848

I would *very* appreciate, if there will be an agreement to implement  
the apparantly so far ready-to-use HTTP header code of mobilOK into  
the markup validator to provide appropriate response parameters to  
requesting clients, especially having the XHTML MIME type application/ 
xhtml+xml in mind.
