Yeah, that was a bug. Fixed now.

FWIW if you want to avoid the need to upload a file you can instead supply
the document as a data-scheme URL with an application/xhtml+xml media type,
like this:

  http://validator.w3.org/nu/?doc=data:application/xhtml+xml,<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><head><title>Test</title></head><body><iframe>invalid</iframe></body></html>

That'll cause the document to be parsed as XML and checked against the
XHTML5 schema).
