Hi Hoylen,

You can actually submit an instance without validation already - you simply
ensure that there are no bind constraints or schemas defined for the model.
However, you are currently unable to move the data that a user is editing
from a 'live' instance to an instance for saving without validating. This is
being addressed in 1.1.
