W3C Validator Redesign

As we all know, the W3C recently redesigned their validator. While it might be marginally better than the old design, frankly, it still sucks. I think the simple fact that sites such as the W3C's have such poor designs and are overall not at all user friendly makes it harder than it has to be to promote web standards.
Personally, I think it's too bad they didn't open this up to the community and allow people to submit designs for the validator. I would have been willing to give it a shot and I'm quite sure that many others would have as well. It's a shame that they can't put a bit more priority (even a tiny bit!) on design and usability. I'm certain that had they opened this up to the community, some very nice designs would have been submitted - perhaps even some of the "big names" would have gotten involved.
Ah well, maybe the next redesign will look good.
