I disagree and actually I have requested this feature some time ago, see
http://www.w3.org/2002/02/mid/89jn1uk63k59dsvan57sn7nb2i6cf91aip@4ax.com

Using the file upload form is in general possible, but rather
uncomfortable, if a simple switch could enable such feature in the
validator. Consider e.g. dynamically generated error messages.
