The validator doesn't allow MathML and SVG in text/html yet to  
discourage authors from publishing such content before browser support  
for SVG and MathML in text/html is shipping.

Now that authors can actually experiment with HTML5-enabled Firefox  
nightlies, I guess this restriction could be lifted from the validator.
