---- Does Google reward valid code?

If Google were to use its indirect influence to nudge site design in a "healthy" direction, there are other social techniques it could use:
Drop sites that contain known security vulnerabilities (e.g. sites using old, exploitable FormMail scripts or ones that link to non-SSL versions of credit card processors)
Reward sites that offer alternative versions to reach the disenfranchised; e.g. sites that follow WAI [w3.org] or Section 508 [section508.gov] (USA) accessibility guidelines or sites that natively offer content in multiple languages.
