For properties specified on the command line -- yes, definitely.

For requirements -- yes, it's desired too. Unfortunately, we might need to
drop checking for requiremenets for now to avoid other problems. I agree with
what you said in the other email:

Maybe we just need to do validation much less often and in only a
few specific places, like the flags rule. That way, no validation
becomes the default and we start thinking about places where we want
to put it in.
