I would think if you give up working on the book, you give up the credit. But 
there are just cases where a validator has to give up the work. Maybe he or she 
is sick, but why should all of the inital work be lost? Maybe there are 
personal circumstances where the validator needs time off. Maybe there are 
circumstances in the book where the validator can do most of the work, but then 
the rest has to be finished by someone who can look at the print book. The 
system as it is now doesn't allow for the latter to happen because you can't 
share the file.  And lots of times I am happy to add finishing touches to a 
carefully validated book, but I would not want to be responsible for validating 
the entire thing.  With an option to release the book but save the changes, 
more of that kind of work would be possible.
