"DOMAIN VALIDATION" is to test by emperical means and verification by bus
analyzers considered standard to a given industry.
In storage it means to have access/creation of the low_level transport
layer to the hardware and be able to verify all the capablities of the
hardware. This is regardless if you use them or not.
Linux has never used this in the past to the best of my knowledge.
I am the first to push the idea, regardless how obvious it seems.
In the past it was a "WAG" or "BHAG" but nobody has ever taken it
seriously and now that Linux is finally becoming a serious OS, it needs to
grow some wisdom.
Now the short version is to perform a write-read-verify-compare.
