A rather similar question came up hear maybe half a year ago. That poster got "corrected" for insisting that browser input validation was enuff.

I would say: that DB-level validation is absolutely mandatory to protect the DB from data corruption. E.g. somebody my try to enter data with their own client (out of malice or just curiosity).

Having data validation-as-you-type is matter of user friendliness. Eg I hate sites that tell you that the password I just entered twice needs more stuff, after having chewed on the entire form for bit.
