At this point, it's true that *most* Mozilla users are either standards
junkies, *NIX junkies, open source junkies, etc. That is, they're not
typical users.

However, read on.

We should care because Mozilla is correctly implementing W3C
recommendations in this case. It only affects sites with a strict
DOCTYPE, and anyone writing strict code ought to be willing to do what
it takes to make the site behave properly in a standards-compliant
environment.

Basically, this goes back to the old argument of "shall we support
standards?"  By checking our sites in Mozilla, which is often correct in
its implementations of XHTML, CSS, XML, etc., we are encouraging such
implementations.
