I think that the long term way we will integrate validation is as a part of file parsing, not as an external process. The validator can be run at any time, and should be run any time changes are performed. I think that we could cause a number of bad side effects if we were to cause any action in event of validation failure, as there are bugs in schemas from time to time.

I would say that you could cause a much worse problem, depending on client configuration, if validation failed, yet the server started and made itself available.

This is just one of many times that I'm sure would be useful times to validate.

I am not comfortable making the init script do something like this. I think that it is a fine thing to add as a site-specific customization, but I don't think that it is useful to detect conditions that may or may not be errors, when we can't do anything about them.
