Yep.  You might also be interested in the new alternate output formats
of the development version of the validator (XML, EARL).  There
currently isn't an user interface for enabling those, but you can try
them out by validating a page with <http://validator.w3.org:8001/> and
appending "&output=xml", "&output=earl" or "&output=n3" to the validator
URI.

I think these formats are subject to change too, though...
