Hi Brian,

I would agree, except that I think the dynamic constraint language can
run calculations on the validation constraints, and if so, many
simultaneous things can break and the result of one user change, perhaps
even on pages other than the one the user is viewing.

I expect an XForms form would try to validate when any

field is edited or (at the latest) when any field 
blurs.  Batching errors until form completion doesn't 
seem as user-friendly.
