If the validator doesn't recognise the DOCTYPE, it should not assume anything. 
At the moment, validating something that says:

   <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//TEST/VALIDATE ME//EN" "http://example.com/">

...always says it is valid. It should either download the DTD and validate 
against that, or claim it cannot validate it. It should definitely never 
validate against something other than the specified DTD.
