comment If the model is validating the data, shouldn't it throw exceptions on bad input?
+1, I'd much rather have a descriptive ValidationException than going back to the dark ages of having to check the return value of every method call. Simpler code = potentially less errors.

comment I should have used a factory method instead of a constructor. Can I change that and still be backwards-compatible?
+1, nice option. I still prefer option 2, though, since it allows me to access XmlDataSource-specific functionality by explicitly instantiating XmlDataSource.
