There are definitely 2 steps involved here.

widgets do processing on the input, to change it into the right data  
type. (this is how i felt checkboxes/ select lists should have been  
handled, not by being hardcoded in form_builder)
fields validate the data that they have been given, whether by code  
or by the widgets.

I don't believe we should include the #validate functions for the  
field types / widgets into the form structure thought,
because if we do it right,. every single field will have validation  
and all that information will not often be modified (fields can still  
have additional validation rules of course).

We don't want to bloat the data structure unnecessarily.
