I just found out, that 
-E 'tidy -mq'
in my .wmlrc seems to do nearly what I expect.
Now I only have to write a wrapper, which changes the exit value of
tidy (at the moment it terminates with 1 on warnings)...

But I still think, that there should be some more elegant way to do
so, otherwise tidy doesn't need to be installed as wml_aux_tidy.
