I can't undertand the criteria with which most of you want to put 
Validity in L1.

If the criteria is "non valid pages MAY lead to problem of 
accessibility", can some of you explain what kind of statement could we 
put in L2 and even L3?

What kind of issues would you put in L2 and L3 and *why*? Should the 
"reasonable effort" become a part of criteria or it shouldn't?

Seriously, I can't understand your overestimation of validation, 
ignoring a whole world of disabled users (not only blind user) that use 
pages despite of validation issues.

So I think we should first agree on what kind of things (and based on 
what criteria) we would put in L1, L2 and L3 before continuing this 
discussion. Maybe that can help.

Bye

Maurizio
