survey of top web sites

In the teleconference survey, Josef Spillner writes:

"Clarification would be needed on the top200 vs. top200-US sites survey
suggestions. The latter one would clearly produce skewed results, but
the former one should also not be more than a tiny source of input, as
top sites usually don't build HTML pages, they buy them instead."

I'm not really that picky. If you want to survey the top 200 sites
in the world, go for it. If you want to survey the top 3 sites
in your neighborhood, that's perhaps a little less interesting,
but I'd still like to hear about it.

If we end up with 4 or 5 overlapping surveys (world, europe,
US, asia, by language, by pagerank, by traffic, etc) I think
that would be great.

Does anybody have any progress to report so far? either
for HTML4-happiness or HTML5-happiness or XHTML-happiness?

p.s. for reference, for anyone joining the conversation recently...

a periodic survey of the top 200 web sites
      * e.g. Alexa top 500 
      * do they conform to the current draft? 
              * are the ways they don't conform captured in an issues
      * which features do they use? 
      * are they mobile-happy, WAI-happy?
