I agree that the current "interface" has pretty much reached its limits.
I would like to add warnings that the messages are going to a public
list (people figure that out eventually when challenged by the archive
approval system), always mention the URI of the document validated, etc.

But that is hardly possible within the current validation results pages,
so we had decided (a while ago already) to have the feedback icon
actually link to a form-based service rather than a simple mailto:.

I have started work on the forms, I'll integrate the many good ideas
from your mail.
