Yes, exactly. In my opinion this is slighly beyond the scope of Thrift.

I'm not sure if we are talking about client or server end here. In either 
case, the first approach that comes to my mind would be to encapsulate all 
the calls to/from the API into another layer that takes care of the 
validator() calls. The layer is located between the Thrift API 
implementation and the rest of the application logic, where it can do 
whatever he wants to do with the data structures that flow through. This 
method could work pretty much the same way with clients or servers, whatever 
you need.

I think he's suggesting that what you're trying to do is something that 
doesn't align with the intrinsic purpose of what Thrift does.
