I think the job of an UI client is to help the user, without enforcing
something on him/her. Validating is ok, as long as
- it doesn't _force_ the user to do something (forcing is bad, and other
clients might not do that so it's easy to work around that)
- it doesn't slow down the actual task the user wants to do. That means
as less network connections as possible, and no 'automatic' connections,
only connections which happen when the user explicitely 'asks' for it by
e.g. clicking on a "validate" button or clicking on a combobox to show a
list of open issues.

Oh, and the whole implementation should not require additional
libraries. That's one of my personal requests.
