I posted a similar response to this list a a few minutes ago. Here's a 
paraphrase for your specific question:

The default configuration for the validation interceptor is not suitable 
for this.  The parameter validateAnnotatedMethodOnly needs to be sets to 
true so the annotations only apply for the specific method instead of 
the entire class.  

What I've done is replace the rest default stack with one that includes 
the validation interceptor with better configuration:

<interceptor-ref name="validation">
  <param name="excludeMethods">input,back,cancel,browse,index</param>
  <param name="validateAnnotatedMethodOnly">true</param>
<interceptor-ref name="restWorkflow">
  <param name="excludeMethods">input,back,cancel,browse,index</param>

Hope that helps.
