Right... or rather, a look into ActionDefinitionBuilder shows that 
<fd:action> doesn't have it...

Man, 24 hours ago I knew not of the existence of any of these 
classes... but by now I sure do!

BTW, I dug into this a little bit and ended up BZing it myself: .  My 
investigation also shows why  a workaround I came up with wasn't 
working.  I thought that since action widgets were "triggering" 
validation, I would just make them all into submit widgets with 
@validate="false", then put my own loop around form.sendForm(), exiting 
the loop based on what button the submit came from.  That sure didn't 
work, because it isn't that action widgets are "triggering" validation 
when they shouldn't be, it's that validation apparently always happens, 
and the only thing @validate does is tell the form what to return to 
the flow layer — "finished" (i.e. redisplay), or "not finished".
