I wouldn't say it's a failing, more that it's the "ideal" goal - even if not too many sites reach it, its still a measure of how close you are to having your site be 100% strictly correct, even if other factors like CMS's or faulty browsers require you to have errors, it's still a good measure of how far you have to go if you want to minimize the risk of a certain browser choosing to render your website in an unanticipated way. 

As a practical matter, I'd say having a few errors on your site isn't a major flaw, nor is it something that invalidates the test - the test isn't designed as a way to judge whether a site "passes" or "fails", it's more of a tool for a developer to use to see errors in their code. If you choose to ignore a few errors as a developer, that's totally on you.
