Yes and no. The reason is historical: ValidationErrors were only created
by Woody classes themselves, so all their messages would come from the
woody catalogue.

to add some more flexibility to the ValidationError class.

As Sylvain also replied, this has been brought up already, even as

I suppose you should know since you even replied to it ;-)

I've actually implemented it already but I want to clean up some other
things first before committing it.
