James,

The WG has considered your proposals, but in the end we were not
motivated to make any changes. Although there are some use cases that
would be simplified by your suggestions, we concluded that there were
others that would not. Writing your own pipeline allows you to get
precisely the semantics that you need.

What's more, adoption of your suggestion for
p:validate-with-xml-schema would have required parallel changes in the
other validation steps for consistency.

If you are unsatisfied by this rationale, please let us know.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
