indeed. I was actually expecting more of "why don't html5 documents  
pass the markup validator" than people trying to find markup errors in  
the spec. I've seen better in the realm of constructive criticismů  
FWIW, validating is one point in a looong checklist all documents  
published into http://www.w3.org/TR/ must pass before publication.

The html5 spec passes, but the document is so huge I suspect it can  
trigger some timeout mechanisms if the server is a little overloaded.  
It passes now on both production servers, so it definitely looks load- 
induced.

Right. Since the other two servers were upgraded to much more powerful  
machines and since the network link to validat-r-jp.w3.org was rather  
poor, we retired it.
