Well, it renders as it is now to make reading of error pages
easier. While changing rendering is certainly possible, this is
something usually justified by better rendering, not just
by switching to standards mode instead of quirks mode.

Note well that the "<center>" tag is valid HTML 3.2 tag. While it
was removed in HTML 5, it does not make it "invalid HTML". We can
even make returned HTML perfectly valid by explicitly returning
appropriate DOCTYPE (yet again there are no practical reasons to
do so, and this will make error pages bigger).
