Something I overlooked in Witold's message:

And indeed the validator only gives the size if it is stated in the 
HTTP headers, and does not calculate the size if it's not given by the 
server.

The validator *could* calculate the size of the document being parsed.

I am not convinced yet that the overhead (albeit perhaps minor) for a 
feature that is not directly related to the validator's purpose is 
worthy.

Opinions welcome.
