We need to be careful in using the Validator "conclusions". There was general concensus that results such as "http://xxx#Dogg is not defined as a Class on the page at http://xxx" were helpful and appropriate, but don't constitute an error (though Jeff thought such undefined classes should be an error). The Validator allows users to adjust the levels associated with its indications.
