           Summary: Direct Input validation needs a "parse mode" option?
           Product: Validator
           Version: 0.7.0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P4
         Component: check
        AssignedTo: link@pobox.com
        ReportedBy: ot@w3.org
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org

Since the Direct Input validation cannot rely on mime type to get a hint of the proper parse mode to be 
applied, cases when the other methods to detect the parse mode fail (e.g unknown FPI) result in a 
fallback to SGML mode, which is not always the proper thing to do.

Perhaps an SGML/XML switch (similar in a way to what Nick is doing) would help.
