That's actually a very good question. I'm not sure why the WDG decided to
implement their own Validator instead of using the W3C one. If they needed
new features they could have submitted patches (even if Gerald is slow to
pick up on them ;D).

Possibly because the W3C validator is showing it's age; it's badly in need
of modernization (allthough the recent work by Maldwyn Morris helped
tremendously). When what is really needed is to throw away all the old
stuff and reimplement it from scratch; why not just start with a clean
slate and make your own? I know I did that once.
