this is an intranet for a smallish company, so the users won't have
javascript turned off or mucked with (they're the ones who'll directly
benefit from the tool) and the chances of even two people using this
tool simultaneously are so slight we can call them zero.

so, if javascript is an acceptable choice and the choices which were
valid when we built the form are still valid when we post it, is there
another reason to need server side re-validation?

I don't understand what that means - what will the user experience? does
the page reload? is this only validating at the server, not in the page?
