You use the word "valid" in a way that leads me to beleive you are into
SGML thinking here.

As seen from that perspective, there are ways to produce a fully "valid"
HTML document that would pass nsgmls with flying colors, but does not
have a DOCTYPE declaration at the top of it.

A document that does not contain any kind of markup that needs a
declaration subset as a "side explanation" of proper syntax does not
need a DOCTYPE declaration at the top of it either.

MS-IE will definitely not handle such a doc "correctly", you know it,
and the web-SGML-TC predicted it years back in time.
