I think Kynn and I already got that...

However, I'm currently thinking about re-writing the check script with
some more object orientation to

  * seperate code and presentation
  * allow more backends than just SP, e.g.

     * a real XML Validator
     * XML Schema Validator
     * the CSS Validator
     * HTML::Tidy
     * ...
  * l10n of the Validator

One idea was to create some mapping table for common error messages. To
have a single code rather than some abitrary text string would
especially ease the l10n and the incorporation of appropriate
"explanation..." links. If we had such a table, we could easily
introduce some pragmas to disable certain error messages.
