Validity affects the following things:
* All the time: whether ":invalid" matches the control
* On DOM request: the value of the "validity" DOM attribute and its
related DOM attributes like "validationMessage".
* On submission: whether or not to report a problem.
Off-hand I can't think of anything that is affected by the validation
stuff,. Does that answer your question?
