What's happening is that the Validator supresses the Outline etc. when the
page being checked is Valid. IOW, when you used the DOCTYPE Override, the
file no longer Validated and so the Outline etc. appeared.

Based on the feedback so far, it looks like we'll bring this functionality
back in a future version. Probably by way of a "Verbose" option on the
"Extended Interface" page.
