We actually do:

Though you should use 'gzip' rather than 'x-gzip'.

Maybe that one works, but I'm filing agains - unless you think
that it shouldn't work (in which case this should be WONTFIX). Where is the
"find the right validator for you" link anyway?

I should have added that is our testbed server (as the 
homepage notes) and is our latest development 
version. will be updated with the new code at some point and 
consequently pass your test case. There is no good end-user documentation for 
finding the right validator version though.
