What possible relevance does that have to the behavior of the validator?

When you give a document to the validator to check, it is impossible for that
document to ever have a title element that contains any child elements.

You filed this bug against the validator. That question has zero relevance to
the behavior of the validator. If you're curious about it, file a bug against
the spec or something.

For the purposes of documents you check with the validator, the no elements can
ever be a child of <title> or <textarea>.

Again the statement you cite above has absolutely no relevance to the behavior
of the validator. So I don't know why you want to continue a discussion about
this here.

Again, you filed this bug report against the validator. But I've told you
already there's no bug in the validator here. So at this point I have no idea
what else you expect me to do in response to this.
