Why is it a /huge/ risk?  I'm asking because I'm not that well-informed on
security issues, and I'm currently involved in a debate with some developers
on this issue.  They think that client-side validation is enough, and would
rather skip the server-side validation.

I disagree with them and want all validation done first on the server-side,
then we can add client-side validation.
