Personally I've never been a big fan of validity. Well-formedness: yes.
Validity: maybe if doesn't hurt too much or get in my way.
The X in XML and XHTML is supposed to stand for "Extensible". A language
that only allows a few fixed tag names isn't very extensible.
For what it's worth (not much) it is possible to make non-standard
extension elements and attributes valid with the appropriate
modifications to the internal DTD subset. I wrote about this in the
first couple of editions of XML in a Nutshell. However, it's quite
painful and doesn't gain you anything in the end. Most of the time
well-formedness is all I need.
