Yes. Sort of. You may not get a SAXException for any validation errors
you start receiving callbacks, rather at the endElement call. So technically
is still occuring whilst you're adding in your new events.

But, from the applications perspective the validation is still occuring at a
layer. So unless you add additional upstream validation your inclusions
be validated against the schema of the input.
