Interesting. It's not for all w3 servers, though, only the one where  
the link checker resides. It looks like the link checker sees that
validator.w3.org = localhost, and thus refuses to check links there  
unless its configuration allows checking private IPs.

Would you add your test case and bug report to bugzilla?
