Have you actually tried it? IBO has a function called PostRetaining,
which allows a record to be posted while the dataset retains its edit
state. It used to be that you had to call this explicitly, but I
think Jason has updated so that the function is called automatically
with master/detail relationships. If you try to post the detail
before the master, the master is PostRetained so that it will not
experience the validation error.
