Excellent suggestion, Sean!  It has the potential to keep everyone happy if 
done right.

But not every operation needs to be a separate process in a pipeline (though it 
could be). In the example of validation versus schemas, it might be easier to 
have one validation process, but have different parameters used to configure 
that process (validate structure only, validate structure AND types..etc.).

Modularity has a way of solving such thorny issues, and pipelines are just 
another form of modularity. 

What is interesting is that this approach is finding favour with the Aspect-
Oriented Programming crowd, where method calls and aspects (interceptors) 
are, in a sense, pipelined together dynamically.  The architecture of the JBoss 
project is an excellent example of such thinking and provides many benefits 
and flexibilities.
