City Name in IS-XML v3.1.1 (Misc Question)

According to the new IS-XML Standard V3.1.1 the City Name field on Buyer & Seller address nodes now states-
 
 If AddressLine 1 details provided then City Name field should be populated.
 
So is this now mandatory if AddressLine1 is populated ?
 
I ask because the occurrence hasn't changed. from the spec, it still states that only AddressLine1 & CountryCode have an occurrence of 1 if an address is to be populated
 
If it is mandatory, what sort of validation will be performed.
 
It seems top me you keep making small changes to the ISPG & XML standard & these small changes do more to confuse than clarify !!

Dear Peter,
 
Having a complete address is a part of legal invoicing requirements. So the validation will only verify that these fields (AddressLine 1 and CountryCode) are populated.

The City Name field should be populated where AddressLine 1 details are provided, but not mandatory and therefore will not be validated by IS.
 
Kind regards
