Good catch. I found that the server running the test validator was  
missing some encoding packages, distributed separately because of  
size concerns:
http://search.cpan.org/~dankogai/Encode-2.23/lib/Encode/ 
Supported.pod#CJK:_Chinese,_Japanese,_Korean_(Multibyte)

[[
Due to the size concerns, additional Chinese encodings below are  
distributed separately on CPAN, under the name Encode::HanExtra.
...
Due to size concerns, additional Japanese encodings below are  
distributed separately on CPAN, under the name Encode::JIS2K.
]]

After installing these extra packages, validation of your document  
works.

Thanks a lot for bringing this to our attention.
