All processors, except the last processor have the IgnoreValidationErrors set to true as the work is not really complete and the validations do not succeed until the last processor succeeds in processing if all processors deal with different aspects of cleanup in the same element.

Once the last processor set in the config file runs we do not expect any more validation errors as the set processors have all completed the job of cleaning up.
