Both types of validation (Validation MySQL and Validation) ignore that a column has no data type.

How to repeat:
1. Create a new table.
2. Add columns, by clicking column name (not tabbing to the next field)
   You should see column names with NO column Data types.
   Here is an image>> http://i2.tinypic.com/6s6y4is.jpg
3. Run Model>Validation>Validate All
4. Run Model>Validation (MySQL)>Validate All
   You should get no errors about the column not having a data type

As you can see nothing about the column not having a data type.

Suggested fix:
Throw an error, or like before after a column gets added automatically add a data type so this doesn't happen.
