Hmm... Mozilla treats all unknown doctypes or doctypes with an internal subset 
in standards mode.  Quirks is only applied to doctypes present in the doctype 
blacklist, basically.

What behavior do other browsers have with regard to unknown doctypes?

This would be a good thing to add to that quirks/standards chart that was cited 
earlier in the thread.
