However, you can validate a 'transitional' document. Wheras, it would be
impossible to get a document stamped with 'unready' to validate..
(Allthough, you could of course validate = check it for errors.)
Therefore, an 'unready' stamp, placed there by the author himself, would
not be same thing. (Wheras a WYSIWYG stamp would be something of the same.)
