My vote goes to trusting the user, eg. behaving based on the options.

At least something needs to be done, currently eg. the "Show source"
option does practically nothing.  If a document doesn't validate, the
source is displayed, whether the option was selected or not [1].  And
the other way around if the document validates.

[1] Exception to the rule: if the doctype is not specified for a
    document, then the "Show source" checkbox works according to the
    choice.
