And yet... The fact that it has been broken from day-1 (3.5 years
ago) shows how good we are at enforcing those requirements.

As long as this isn't part of the normal build flow, these errors
will get ignored. I don't even know how to trigger this validation,
TBH.

That would be much better. At least this *does* run at build time.

Indeed. I was clutching at straws here.

That's actually a much better solution, thanks for pointing this out.
At least I can shout about broken DTs while fixing it up, and the
new fix is fairly neat.

I'll post new patches shortly.

Thanks,
