I will take a look. Thanks for info.

Well, the primary focus of validator were XHTML pages that are parsed 
directly by XML parser. TagSoup was added latter to have ability to 
process HTML documents. Relaxed thus will not catch errors like 
unbalanced tags that are corrected by TagSoup, but you will still get 
very useful messages about wrong datatypes, etc. that are not 
expressible in HTML DTD.

But you are right that this limitation should be clearly stated when 
HTML page is preprocessed by TagSoup.
