I guess we can always try to profile the dt-validate tool to see where
the bottleneck is.

Another area of improvement might be to use a faster language. Rust's
regex engine is known to be blazing fast for example. However, it's a
pretty exotic language, and it would probably hurt the
maintainability. Maybe go would be a good in-between?

That would be a good mitigation indeed.
