X-UA-Compatible is a very common meta and quite necessary for browsers such as
IE to use the latest rendering engine. 

Use of this meta causes an *error* in the validator. This should be a warning
at the maximum and potentially just an "Info" note.

Though.. if I'm reading this right... is this solution to this issue just
adding an entry to http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/PragmaExtensions  ?
