Why would you assume that ?  Validating the base Google site

	http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://www.google.com/

reveals a possible 35 errors, 2 warnings, and use of a work in progress
(HTML 5) rather than an established W3C specification such as
HTML 4.01.

It doesn't seem appropriate (to me) to ask the Validator team
to rubber-stamp Google's errors.  Far better, IMHO, to ask
Google to write and supply standards-compliant code.
