Not a very strong argument, since as far as I know, there's exactly one HTML5
validator and it mostly just does what the spec says.  The idea of a real
validator ecosystem where multiple validators will compete on utility for
authors is a nice theory, but it hasn't actually worked out.  Having the spec
require warnings seems like the appropriate way to handle these things for the
foreseeable futures.  Particularly since it requires errors or warnings in so
many cases already for things that just might confuse authors or cause subtle
problems.
