The current Beta validator doesn't signal as fault a mime-type
discrepancy such as the one for http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/. Namely,
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/ is served as text/html while it's using
XHTML 1.1 which is not compatible with text/html, but the validator
doesn't complain at all:

I think a warning or better an error would be in order. I'm not sure if
that something that could be added in this cycle of development, but
that would be neat.
