Interesting. So in lieu of all the "tell that to the distributors/publishers who are requiring epubcheck 3" pleas ... does anyone have any actual stats on who is actually requiring epubcheck 3-validated submissions?

So, to me, it's easier to do fundamental ePUBchecks with FC in Sigil, and then just drop the book on the most recent ePUBcheck, or, whatever ePUBcheck the specific distributor is using (like 1.1).
Common baseline (spec-based)... then tweak for specific publisher/distributor requirements. Makes perfect sense to me.
