Why are you validating on the server when the user tabs out? I'd keep the "light" validation on the client side with JavaScript and save the postbacks for submitting the form. Then you can set the focus to the field that has errors, or move them on.

That validation you are mentioning should definitely be clientside. Is the developer rolling their own code, or using something supplied by the framework like a RequiredFieldValidator that can be set to dynamic and will run on the clientside without a postback?

If there is some compelling reason why you would roundtrip every time a user leaves a field (which seems to make sense only for a small internal app without many concurrent users, otherwise it won't scale well) then I'd look at using a callback instead of a postback for the validation. They are not complicated to wire in and infinitely improve the user experience while cutting down on the size of network traffic (have you used Fiddler or something similar to see how much data, like ViewState, gets thrown around when you postback?)
