Validator logo for module-based XHTML?

So I just finished a slightly custom DTD (with much help from Sean Palmer and Nick Kew) that calles the XHTML 1.1 DTD, the target module, the iframe module, and changes the usemap attribute back to type URI so that it works.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "+//IDN PetesGuide.com//DTD XHTML 1.1 plus Target plus Iframe plus CSI patch//EN"
          "http://www.PetesGuide.com/DTDs/xhtml11-target-iframe-CSIpatch.dtd">

The obvious thing to do first was validate a page using it, like this:

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.petesguide.com%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=%28detect+automatically%29

But you'll notice that this successful validation message is lacking a nice pretty icon, for obvious reasons ('taint XHTML 1.1, after all).

Should there be a generic icon to indicate that a page has passed validation, with a label something like "Valid Module-Based XHTML"? Or would that simply encourage bastardization of the language, or imply that the w3c is giving some form of approval to a custom DTD that it didn't write?
