THat's not a workaround, it's a fix for the original problem in your markup. The 'head' element requires a 
'title' element and the validator will tell you that the 'head' element is "not finished" if it finds the end tag 
for 'head' without having seen a 'title' element. IOW this was never a bug in the validator, it was a genuine 
error in your original markup.

Closing as Invalid.
