The W3 validator is indeed far from perfect, see 
It doesn't ignore the extra namespace things for example
My 2plainSVG.php is only a workaround for exactly that bug, to make the 
validator result more useful and readable.

As the W3 validator also does not have unlimited resources that list is 
most likely interested in the openClipArt validation
