Pingback source URIs are no longer checked for a valid link (!!!)

In both 1.6 SVN and /branches/1.5/, pingback "from" URIs are no longer checked to see if they have a valid link!
This change happened when Denis' improved excerpt code was inserted. The old code was taken out... including the part that verifies that the link exists.
This definitely needs to get fixed before a 22.214.171.124 release is made from the 1.5 code branch, or Pingback will suddenly be as wide open as Trackback to spammers. How do you think I discovered this bug? ;-)
