1.16.0 ships with an XHTML Strict header for XML well-formedness reasons.  Try
setting the validator manually to HTML5 and it will validate (modulo bugs):

In 1.17, we switched to <!DOCTYPE html> after some fixes to ensure this doesn't
break well-formedness (basically, getting rid of named entities).  In 1.16, you
can either set $wgWellFormedXml = false (disabling well-formedness) or $wgHtml5
= false (disabling HTML5 features) to get the doctype to match the content.  In
the default setup, output is valid HTML5 (modulo bugs) but has a misleading

Basically, there is an issue here, but it's fixed in 1.17, so there's nothing
specific for us to do at this point.  The patch to remove named entities was
enormous and will not be backported to 1.16.  In the future, you should file
new bugs on specific issues you have, not post in existing bugs -- particularly
not tracker bugs.
