All Custom Validations stopped working, all at once.

I have about 40 custom validations on one form, and at least as many standard validations (e.g. required, etc).  I have finished all of it, and then went to test, from scratch, and all of my custom validations did not fire.  I'm trying to think if there was some switch I inadvertently toggle....  any ideas?

... this is because all standard validations must be resolved before custom validations will fire.  I filled in all of the standard-ly validated fields and then the custom ones (one by one, ugh) would show up.


I'd love to know the reasoning behind this.
