[development] losing value somewhere after validate.

OK, I found the document that describes differences between 4.6 and 4.6.
It states that I cannot change a value on validation.*
3. validate (you can only validate here, no changes possible)
This conflicts with the nodeapi docs:
"validate": ... This hook can be used to check or even modify the node
Should I assume that the first one is correct? This would mean that I am
just encountering legacy 4.6 code in ecommerce 4.7. Sorry, I'm finding
this hard to get my head around.
