Indeed it does. There are also a few media types the markup validator cannot
handle directly, but which it can "pass" to other validators (at least
text/css, and if it's not the case, I think it should pass atom and so on to
the feed validator).

Do you know whether most of such techniques have specific URIs for the 
application/xhtml+xml and text/html representation?
