On the XML output itself, it's nice to have, but is available in other
validators, so not essential,  the http headers though are very nice,
it's much better to make a "valid" test in a few hundred bytes than
having to get pages and pages, I'm often interested in if a page is
valid, but don't really care what the 300 errors I get back are.

So XML, nice if it's stable, (ditto EARL) but HEAD reporting is a
must-have for me.
