--- Comment #10 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch>  2010-02-25 02:57:41 ---
I changed my regexps to only look at pages that match this:

   /<!doctype\s+html\s+public\s+"[^"]+"\s*\[/i
   /<!doctype\s+html\s+public\s+'[^']+'\s*\/i

The results, looking for this data in the Google index, found about 0.000125%
of pages are have this particular DOCTYPE pattern. Note, though, that this
doesn't include DOCTYPEs that are simply bogus, e.g. that have a missing quote
in the system identifier part, which Philip's data _does_ catch.

Here's a random selection of some of the matching pages:

I'm leaning towards not changing the spec, based on the rarity of this and
based on Simon's findings earlier in this bug.
