Indeed, this has been suggested quite a few times, recently by e.g 
Björn at:
	http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-validator/2004Apr/0077.html

This kind of output does have its pros and cons (e.g some people prefer 
to fix errors one by one, in case the markup mistakes cause errors in 
the parsing of the rest of a document), although time, not 
shortcomings, is mostly the reason it's not been implemented yet...

Thanks for your input!
