No, nobody has done any work on this yet.  It's a natural and obvious
thing to have in the framework, though.

Do you want to do it onblur() (as soon as the user moves away from the
field) or when the form is submitted?  How do you want it to respond?
(With a javascript alert, or ?)  I would do it in somewhat different
ways depending on the answer to that.
