I am re-reading the spec (proposed 1.0 2nd ed.), and I notice that under 
"4.3.4 The xforms-refresh Event", it says:

"If the xforms-value-changed event is marked for dispatching, then all 
of the appropriate model item property notification events must also be 
marked for dispatching (xforms-optional or xforms-required, 
xforms-readwrite or xforms-readonly, and xforms-enabled or 

The above mentions all the MIP events, except xforms-valid or 
xforms-invalid. Is this a voluntary omission? If so, it would seem to 
say that if a value changes, but the MIP doesn't change, then there is 
no need to send xforms-valid and xforms-invalid.
