You know the web page graphic icons the validator says you can use if your page 
validates?  You know with the suggestion it gives for HTML to insert, like the 
following:

  <p>
<a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer"><img
         src="http://www.w3.org/Icons/valid-xhtml10"
         alt="Valid XHTML 1.0!" height="31" width="88" /></a>
</p>


I suggest you guys make the validator detect the presence of one of the 
available icons in someone's page, and if their page isn't valid, then you 
should give them a hard time about it in the validation report.

Just my $2E-2.
