If that is the definition of feasibly valid, then what couldn't be? Is this like "conformable" again?

Hmm, rather depends on what you mean by "parallel"... if you mean
"similarly generates a warning", then yes, but ontologically I think
these cases are completely different. The incomplete skeletal examples,
I continue to think, are not examples but schemata; there's no way they
can be made valid without completing them. This one is (if you like)
"feasibly" valid because an appropriately configured validator would
recognise it as valid as it stands, though our validator doesn't.
