I'm puzzled that, when checking the (correct) document

<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg"/>

the beta validator tells me that 

a) its invalid (its not); 
b) that I should add an HTML 4 transitional doctype and that until I do, my
document will be invalid (not true) and 
c) that there is an xml namespace declaration in a non-xml document (it is an
xml document)
