I've had to deal with this issue from several different 
perspectives recently.  Bottom line is that it is simply a 
matter of semantics.

Use very liberal and forgiving definitions of "validate" and
"verify", and remind yourself that the Marketing Dept 
probably has last say over what goes on a web site.

If I didn't validate and verify myself, then it hasn't been
done to my satisfaction.  And this is why Steve and I have 
always worked 140 hr weeks.
