The doctype dropdown menu at http://validator.w3.org/check doesn't include
XHTML5 anywhere in the list (though HTML5 is).

Just a thought, but it occurs to me that if we could just TELL the validator
that the page to be validated was supposed to be XHTML5, by selecting XHTML5
from the dropdown menu, instead of letting it auto-detect, then we would be
able to have pages checked as XHTML5, regardless of whether or not they were

Presumably, we would then also be able to supply the select value as a GET
parameter, and thereby provide a "validate this page" link for visitors to
check for themselves.
