Iff an XHTML 1.0 document is served as text/html it may be appropriate to issue
an informative note indicating that serving XHTML 1.0 as text/html requires
compliance with Appendix C and that checking whether that is the case is beyond
the current scope of the Validator.

This, of course, leaves us the risk of a slippery slope with having to issue
notices for every other thing we do not in fact check for in the Validator
(full conformance springs to mind).
