I completely disagree.

Javascript works a lot better with valid HMTL, so does CSS. By which I mean
some invalid HMTL will break both CSS styling and JavaScript functionality.
So to dismiss validation as worthless ("not valid any more") is ill advised.

Also, HTML 5 is *not yet supported* across the board, and will not be for
quite a while. XHTML is not dead, it *is supported* by all the newest
browsers in their 'best' mode (not quirks).
