Unfortunately, "validation" is taken in many circles as "verifying the
validity of input", without changing said input in any form. And to
make it worse, Unicode also defines "normalization" (which would be
the right term in most other contexts) as something else.
I propose coining the ugly term "validification", meaning "making the
(possibly invalid) input valid"
