Validator warning

As Scott Andrew has noted, the W3C’s beta validator is now returning the following warning as part of it’s XML output:

This interface is highly experimental and the output *will* change -- probably even several times -- before finished. Do *not* rely on it!

As I said in my post announcing the web service interface, it may stop working at any time. Treat it as an experiment / proof-of-concept and you won’t get burnt if/when it breaks.
