When will IT departments realize that absurdly stringent password policies greatly jeopardize security, as people become prone to write them down?
I like running high resolutions on smaller displays because everything looks sharper, not because I'd like more viewing area (and consequently, a minuscule UI, as you rightly pointed out.)

TFA could be referring to the fact that red lasers are used to check the master for consistency.
Although there's nothing "wrong" per se, the standards are excessively strict, and slight nonconformity will not cause rendering issues in any browser. For example, non-literal attribute values, while not technically standards compliant, is properly recognized by every HTML parser in existence. Arguably, such usage conforms to a "democratic standard," rendering the W3C's say irrelevant on this specific matter.
Furthermore, W3C's validation tool doesn't work very well. In Google's case, it's flagged bits of string literals (URLs in links, specifically) as invalid.
