Techniques NEVER forbid anything.  A technique cannot forbid. 

Something may not qualify as an implementation of that technique.  But it
could be another technique itself.  

Whether that other technique would also satisfy the SC is a different
question.  Once written up it can be considered by the group and accepted or
not as sufficient or advisory or as a failure.  If it works it would be
Sufficient or advisory. If it satisfies the SC it would be sufficient. 

ALSO something does not have to be listed by the group as sufficient to be
sufficient.   More on this is in the Understanding WCAG 2.0 doc itself.

The WCAG2 Techniques document (still draft) has a technique regarding
validation:
http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/#G134

It states "HTML pages include a document type declaration (sometimes
referred to as !DOCTYPE statement) and are valid according to the HTML
version specified by the document type declaration."

So this technique will, in effect, forbid nested forms.

I notice that this technique is mapped to Success Criteria 4.1.1 which is
level 1.

Cheers,
Chris
