At the risk of top posting...I agree.

>>>>>>How did the Web become popular? It was because ordinary people learned

they could do it. Most of them have never figured out what a doctype is. 
Most of them have no idea what CSS is, or that it can do more than set 
fonts and colors. Many of us are years ahead of them in terms of what we 
know about current practice. And that's okay, for now. But we don't have 
the power to turn the world around to match our requirements. If we try 
to do that, all we will do is make unreasonable requirements which 
organizations and governments will ignore. Validity at level 1 is 
counterproductive to our larger goal of increasing the amount of Web 
content that is reasonably accessible.
