Often, CiviMail users will want to send a draft email to someone for approval before they know the exact list of recipients. However, you can't "Send Test" unless you meet all the requirements for sending the email itself - most notably, the list of recipients.

Is there a reason for this I can't think of? I wanted to put it out here before I considered writing a patch for this.

I would think this is just that the entire form is being validated. It would make sense that there is different validation for the preview than their is for sending.
