Write XPath Queries into the meta-xml-doc and transform it to an XSLT.

Write XPath ...

meta/result doc: UTF-8 ;-)

If all meta informations about the incoming document should be in one  
big XML (like the HTTPResponse), like
the parsing informations about correct/incorrect encoding, encoding  
type,  XML declaration informations, ... in an XMLized version,
the work can be done by some XPath queries.

OK, only to check if I am right:
We have a incoming, meta and result doc.
The preprocessor transforms the incoming markup, HTTP headers and  
parsing information in one big XML.
The validation processor (XSLT) uses the meta doc to check the XML  
and generate a result doc.
Is this correct?
