Right, it was the datepicker code I (wrongly) categorized as validation: 
I saw the code, then tried fill in non-date string in those fields, got 
a successful submit, and wrote my email about lack of server-side 
validation. :-)

Exactly. :-)

In that case, this (weaker than validation) remark goes to whoever picks 
it up :-)
