Well, then I guess you don't use schema to its full potential...since schema allows for partial validation.  In schema, valdiation is NOT binary.  See, for example, the [validation attempted] PSVI property [1], whose possible values are "full, partial or none" and the [validity] PSVI property [2] whose possible values are "valid, invalid or notKnown".  Thus the validation outcome for any element/attribute is a 3x3 matrix...not a boolean.
