How would people feel if I removed that clause.  They can be
considered validated.  The period over which that validation applies
is then no different to a regular request/response exchange, which
suffers all of the same sorts of thorny and ambiguous validity issues.
(i.e., By avoiding an attempt to define validity expressly, we're not
making it worse, even if we're not tackling the issue fully.)
