Leaving aside the question of the Validator team publishing what is,  
effectively, a critique of various software packages, I don't think  
this is a good idea. As statistics go, it simply isn't a very useful  
one. You wouldn't be comparing like with like - the number of errors  
produced would vary with the skill of the user, and the content and  
size of each page.
