This is a way to check your work. An easy "process" tool, not a goal. 
Big difference. I won't list that in a PRO list.

I already mentioned that validation should be a best practice, a way to 
quickly check your work, and a rough estimate of some accessibility 
issues. It's not an accessibility issue itself: it include a variety of 
different cases, some of them related to accessibiliy, some not. They 
must be covered by others guidelines, of course, if they are relevant to 

Anyway, I agree with you that we should define what guidelines 4.1 is 
for, at any level of priority.
