Even for those (xhtml 1.0) sent with text/html? Just trying to figure  
out what would be the steps in the flow of processing.

Hmm I guess a diagram would help here. A volunteer?
Or if olivier gives me the steps that the validator follows now, I  
could sketch up a diagram and we may have a better picture of how it  
could work and if it should be modified or not.
