Well, v.w3.org should only report links as broken if there is no doubt that the 
link is broken, for most news: and nntp: links it cannot know that. We might 
support nntp://example.org which could check whether there is a DNS entry for 
example.org and maybe even whether example.org accepts connections to :nntp, 
but we should not do much more. As not supporting them at all is easier...
