Ah. Apologies. My request in the bug was for the validator to not try to 
sniff XHTML content in documents sent as text/html, but to instead always 
validate text/html files as HTML files, reporting any XHTML DOCTYPEs sent 
in text/html files as being an error. This would be in line with the TAG's 
findings and with the HTML WG's public statements regarding UA behaviour.
