API Overrides?

Hello all,
 
I have two great questions relating to doing creates/updates to objects through the API. We use the Enterprise WSDL v12.
 
1. Is there an API way to tell SFDC not to fire validation rules during my udpdate?
I have heard of using fields in weird ways as exclusions in the validation rules. I would think this is a common API request.
2. Is there an API way to tell SFDC not to update the last modified date and person?
I heard rumors at one point this was possible. Is it?
 
I believe from a developer/administrator standpoint this would be great. Based on previous findings it does not appear these are possible.

If not, will they be available in v13 or possibly v14?
Also, would the Partner WSDL allow this?

I am possibly willing to change WSDL's!
 
Thanks,

Short but sweet Simon. I like it, except for the fact they are No's.

No, not in v13, unlikely to be in v14.

partner wsdl is the same.
