I noticed today that the validator complains if an XHTML family document 
is delivered with media type text/html.  While this is not the 
recommended mechanism, it is certainly not an error.  In fact, it is the 
only way to get IE to render it properly.  The XHTML 2 Working Group is 
in the process of updating the Note about this so it is clearer, but I 
would appreciate it if you would relax this restriction in the validator 
as soon as possible.  It is confusing to our end users.
