This adds overhead, since it creates a formatter and uses it for formatting only for validation purposes.

I think it is better to only have the error when the formatter is actually used (i.e. the help is displayed - which is not the typical use case, and it should be optimized for not displaying the help (i.e. only parsing args)).
The error could be more specific than before/initially though, of course.
