I guess you mean support for the application/vnd.wap.xhtml+xml type. If
you deliver your documents as application/xhtml+xml the validator
supports the XHTML Mobile Profile, just like any other proprietary
document type. I would suggest to lobby the Open Mobile Alliance to
register the MIME type... Even though I somewhat miss the point of
having this MIME type in the first place, implementations are required
to support application/xhtml+xml anyway.
