I was assuming you were talking about the validating the JPEG library
code, because that is what you need to do to determine how much
validation Emacs needs to do of data it's about to hand to libjpeg.

The point of my X.org comment is that there is plenty of code out
there that doesn't validate input well (and some that prides itself on
not validating at all), so Emacs has to do some validation of data.
