Many people do NOT have access to broadband. In capitals and big  
cities in rich countries, that will not be an issue.
In most other places, some web agencies who would like to proceed to a  
local install of the validators will have hard time with 500 Mo to  
download.

And if you are asking, Many people need a local instance of  
validators, because of
    * projects in development (confidentiality, security issues, etc.)
    * not living on a broadband  (transfer time for validation)
    * not creating unfortunate DOS-like (validating 10.000 pages,  
LogValidator for example)
