The Line of Anti-Paedobaptist Catholicity

Daniel W. Doerksen notes in John Donne and the Protestant Reformation: New Perspectives, ‘Donne, by the way, was like all the English and continental reformers (except the Anabaptists) in regarding his baptism into the small-c catholic church as valid.’ This is roughly where I draw the line on which anti-paedobaptist Christians are catholic, weird though they may be in other ways: do they accept the validity of a baptism in the Roman Catholic Church, and do they accept the validity of infant baptism in general?
