And if that book is file attached to someone who can do finishing touches, that breaks our agreement?

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.
