This part sounds like a good idea for tricky postal codes.

I think the more validators we can add, that bring value, the better.

I've been using org.apache.flex.spark... for the validators I put in my
whiteboard area. I think its still up for discussion whether we want to
eventually change the namespace, we talked about it briefly but I don't
think its something we want to do in the 4.x.x branch just so we don't add
an additional barrier to switching from Adobe Flex to Apache Flex.

Yes, I was wondering why you went MX as opposed to Spark. I guess a lot of
people are still using MX components, I haven't written in MX since Spark
was released. :D
