No, not a custom field. It might not even be a custom module.

We frequently need to apply customer-specifc validation routines.

For example, suppose I am editing an Account record (example the phone 
number field) and before I am allowed to save this field I must check 
that something is valid in a related module (which might be custom or 
might be a normal one, like an Invoice for example...).

If my custom validation rule works, then that phone field will still 
need to run the standard validation in Vtiger_PhoneValidator_Js.

Does this make sense?
