I have no interest in implementing polyglot checking for
One of the reasons why I think there should be no polyglot REC is that
I don’t want people to ask validator developers to waste time
developing polyglot checking. (That’s not the primary reason why I’m
opposed to promoting polyglot. The main reason is that I think it’s
wrong to lure Web authors into jumping through useless hoops like
happened with Appendix C.)

I am still interested in adding an option for flagging implied tags in That seems to be something that authors liked about
XHTML 1.0-as-text/html validation. Also, I believe it would go a long
way addressing Sam’s use case of authoring HTML so that it can be
safely fed to a non-conforming HTML parser.
