A repeater cannot hold a validation error, because errors on a repeater 
are most likely to be caused by its content (or lack thereof).

I had the same requirement as yours, and implemented it in a different 
way: if the user removes the last remaining row in a repeater, an empty 
row is recreated immediately (it's in the delete action's event 
listener). Since the row contains required fields, the form cannot 
sucessfully validate unless at least one row is correctly filled.

Hope this helps,
