After discussion with Olivier, or the library itself in C++, it does 
exist already somehow and so developers could use it in their local 
product like well known authoring tools, weblogging tools, etc.

http://apache.webthing.com/mod_validator/

with the following features:

	• 	Features: better and more complete XML support offered by Xerces
	• 	Performance - no CGI overhead
	• 	Performance - no Perl overhead
	• 	Performance - no nsgmls overhead
	• 	Flexibility - generates results as XML
	• 	Accuracy - direct application of the parser, with minimal document 
sniffing applied only to support Appendix C XHTML.
	• 	Accuracy - no imprecise parsing of data from an external program.
	• 	Simplicity - the overall system size and complexity is much reduced.
	• 	Helpfulness - friendly error messages optimised for validation
