Not really: looking at the code, publishing does all its work in the
current directory, then moves the final file to its place (leaving all
the mess compilation made behind). I understand the reason for such a
thing: publishing should only publish the final result.

In other words, I see three places of interest:
- where the org file is
- where export and compilation occurs
- where the final result is put

Publishing lets us deal with the last one, but I don't think there is a
way to distinguish between the first two.

By "validating", do you mean that I have received them back signed from
the FSF? (I signed and sent them a few weeks ago, still waiting to get
them back ...)
