This bug is an inconvenience and causes confusion, but it should not be 
a critical issue. After all, HTML5 validation as such means using 
experimental software to check against mutable drafts (even to the 
extent that it is not specified which HTML5 draft is being used). So 
anything that passes validation in the morning may get flagged with 
errors if validated after lunch.

If the problem disturbs routine validation processes, you can use
http://validator.w3.org/nu/
and the “Message filtering” feature, using checkboxes to specify that 
some messages be not shown. It seems that such selections are stored in 
cookies (on maybe HTML5 storage), so that they remain in effect until 
changed – this is sometimes a problem, but can also be very useful. That 
is, you need to uncheck the relevant checkbox just once (per computer 
and browser).
