Yes, it would be possible. The W3C XML Schema would be more permissive
than the RNG, and the DTD would probably hard-code the namespace
prefixes and be even less functional, but it would be possible.

Try some XML Editors that understand RNG and give syntax directed
feedback. oXygen and ExchangerXML spring to mind.

A test suite for SVG 1.2 is under development. When its released it
will have the SVG and a reference PNG side by side, as you mentioned.
