John's right -- we need more people validating, and we can accomplish that
by explaining how to validate in the instructions, just as we explain how
to map in the instructions. The instructions should have two parts  --
 what the customer wants, and what the customer needs. Currently the
instructions only describe what the customer wants. What the customer
needs, the (generally unstated) validation requirements, are at least as
important as the instructions themselves, and they won't be the same for
all projects any more than the instructions will.
