Validation - Best Strategy



If we take a basic example of a File - IDOC scenario.

What validation should we do in PI and what should we leave to standard IDOC error handling.

I have suggested doing File Structural validation in the File Adapter. XML validation to validate fields technically (make sure dates in right format, Only Numbers in a number field, String patterns for field etc etc), Mapping via RFC to the ABAP stack to perform value mapping via Z-tables.

All SAP master data validation should be done via the Standard IDOC handling right? Or Should I be performing RFC's to get information from the ECC6 side to validate the data before I post to IDOC?

I think I'm looking to confirm a validation strategy and so far cannot find a good blog.

Can anyone help?
