Two things:

1. Would it be a good idea to incorporate some sort of W3 validation
checker into Google's (or any other search engine's) pagerank scheme? My
idea is that pages that have fewer or no accessibility/w3 validation
errors would get a slightly higher pagerank. How would this affect the
quality of the results? As soon as word got out that validated web pages
score higher in Google, you can sure bet that web programmers around the
world will be scrambling to get their pages up to snuff...

2. Is it technically possible?

So what do you folks think?
