To be clear, HTML5 makes the type attribute optional

For reference:

http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/the-link-element.html#attr-link-type
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/the-style-element.html#attr-style-type

And browsers handle link and style content just fine if the type attribute is
omitted. So for authors there really is not much point in including it and for
validators there is not much point in checking for it or reporting anything
about it.
