If using a doctype override and overriding the original to the same that the
doc already has, validator could indeed be a bit smarter about what it
does/says about it.  But then again, I don't see valid use cases for overriding
the doctype declaration to the one it already is.

Note however that the error message you posted indicates that you have used an
incorrect public identifier for an HTML 4.01 strict document; it should be

    "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"

...instead of:

    "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Strict"
