Discussion in the XML Schema Working Group seems to indicate that the WG is
divided on whether 'validation' and 'assessment' actually have different
denotations or connotations.

It is true that the value of the [validity] property and the results people
are interested in are not the same, but it's not clear to some in the WG that
that distinction is captured by the distinction between the terms 'validation'
and 'assessment'.

Can you expound a bit more on the distinction you believe the spec should be
making?
