I agree and I already mailed the list yesterday on this.

You can't really do input checking now, valid_input_data was broken beyond  
repair. We are filtering on output (this was so since long), use  
check_plain , check_url and check_output as appropriate. check_output when  
you have a filter format, check_url when you want to display a url and  
check_plain otherwise if you output your own content.
