Good you understand the difference. So many people don't.
For the record, it is a *lot* easier to ensure that output is
well-formed than ensure that it is valid. For my own purposes, I am
happy to stop at well-formedness. I don't mind validity if I get iut,
but it's not essential.
If WordPress can guarantee well-formedness, that's worth doing on its
own, even if it can't guarantee full validity.
