On that, wasn't there a feature request whereby instead of saying
"Current Doctype:  unknown "
"Congratulations, this document validates as the document type specified!
(I don't have an icon for this one yet, sorry.) "

we'd get the URI, or the Public Identifier of the doctype we'd used, did
that go nowhere?

It still fetches the DTDs for me in HTML btw.
