The opposite opinion is where you have structured messaging that
is done in a small business environment where practically all the
validation is done at a human level.
Humans nut through the a rendering of the documents, work out if the
documents make sense and reject ones that don't. Click a button to
reject it or get further information and make it go away for a while.
One question I have is whether it is such a good idea to let the
humans in.... oh well it's all good fun...
