The HTML5 doctype is listed in that document and even if it is not a
standard yet, I think it brings a lot to the table (attributes related to
accessibility, iPhone, etc.).

imho, choosing the right doctype for a document should not be related to the
validator.

fwiw, I've used the html5 doctype with a couple of projects and I didn't
notice any issue across browsers (ie 5 included).
