For RNG validation, XML::LibXML normally does the trick. For NVDL I  
don't believe there's an implementation, I'd started one but then  
people expected me to do other stuff. It's not horribly complicated  
though, the biggest issue is that the spec is too light on details.  
Maybe someone in perl-xml could be convinced to work on that.
