Just off the top of my head, could you not also provide this sort of 
thing from the DBIx::Class::FormFu component?

NB: I haven't actually thought that comment out, but our internal 
DBIx::Class::FormValidator component that we use here at $work will let 
you do this:

$c->model( 'Foo::Bar' )->validator_profile(
	constraint_methods => { .... }
	# etc...

which will merge with a profile generated by the col_info metadata.
