Calling the application of the rule "pedantic" is rather disingenuous.
I agree with you on the fact that validator should send accept  
headers (see [1]), but it doesn't change the fact that serving XHTML  
1.1 as text/html, in *any* circumstance, is wrong. If one wants text/ 
html, there's XHTML 1.0 with HTML compat guidelines
