Why? What does validation have to do with the quality of a page's content, 
or how relevant the content of a particular page is to my search query?

Now, if two pages had the same page ranking, perhaps validation could be 
used as a tiebreaker. Perhaps some search engine bots should be programmed
to only index pages that validate. Thought would be interesting!
