Two wrongs doesn't make a right.

I think you have a slight misunderstanding of what a validator really
A validator checks if a document instance conforms to a set of formal
rules defined in a document type definition (more specifically a
document type declaration subset), i.e., it doesn't take into account
if a tag breaks something somewhere or not, as long as it is declared.
