Why Isn't Validation Applied to Records in a Portal?

In a layout I have a portal to a related table and, in the relationship between the parent and child table occurrences I have set "Allow creation of records in this table via this relationship" on the side of the child table occurrence. In both the parent and child tables there are a couple of fields where the "Not Empty" validation has been checked. If I add a new record to the table upon which the layout is based and, at the same time, add a related child record in the portal but fail to enter a value in required fields in both the parent and child tables, when I attempt to commit the record I encounter an alert dialog telling me that validation in the parent table has failed but I receive no alert message telling me that child table validation has failed. Why is that?
