According to the HTML WG, a UA is non-compliant if it handles an XHTML document
sent as text/html as XHTML; such a UA must apparently handle the document as
HTML regardless of what it looks like.

# [...] documents served as text/html should be treated as HTML and not as XHTML.

But I don't know if they meant to include validators in that statement.
