You're right, and the same problem has been reported by many others. 
However, it seems that there is no simple way to fix it, without rewriting 
major parts of the validator. The current internal structure of the 
validator seems to imply that when the validator encounters the </head> 
tag, it "knows" only that _something_ is missing from the element's (the 
<head> element's) content.
