I think dispatching on heuristics is a problem with the current W3C 
validator. It emphasizes validity as an internal property of a document 
instead of validation as a quality assurance tool. I think it would be 
more useful to be able to as "Is this document SVG 1.2?" than being 
able to just ask "Is this document valid whatever it is?"
