I've got both client-side and server-side validations in place, but
wonder if I need to do more.

Specifically, ...

In addition to user input via browser, my Rails app can import the same
data from XML files (using REXML).  Is there a possibility of buffer
overruns as I'm reading the data from the XML files into instance
variables in the controller method, prior to submitting them to the
model for validation?  I can't seem to find a definitive statement on
buffer overrun protections in Rails.  Do I need to worry about REXML
too?  Or is the potential issue limited to Rails?

Thanks much for any info.
