Actually, putting about:blank in standards mode would break sites all over (think places that document.write into an empty frame). Furthermore, the <meta> tag is not at all required to be a valid HTML file. I'm not sure why you think it is. Marking invalid.

validator.w3.org said it lacks a charset declaration and that i sould add it somehow
That just means that your server is not sending a proper charset param in the HTTP header. In that case, the validator can't tell the encoding of your markup without either you telling it explicitly or the markup having a meta tag. Since about:blank is never sent over HTTP and hence its encoding is never in question, this is a non-issue for about:blank.
