Ezio, Martin, 

HTML 3.2, HTML 4.01 are not outdated. They have stable specifications. That said their doctypes have not influence at all in browsers. The html5 doctype <!DOCTYPE html> has been chosen because it was the minimal string of characters that put the browsers into strict mode rendering (See Quirks Mode in CSS). The W3C validator is the only tool implementing an SGML parser able to understand HTML 3.2 and HTML 4.01. Note also that the W3C validtor includes an html5 validator if the concern is the validity of the output.
