As it turns out, XML schemas is designed to handle this sort of thing, and 

it even provides switches in the containing schema that signal whether the 

contained payloads are to validated relative to their own schems (look for 

concepts like SKIP, LAX and STRICT validation of wildcards [1]). Of 
course, schemas can't directly avoid the limitations of XML 1.0 itself. 
For example, schemas have key, keyref mechanisms which resemble ID, but 
have element scope...BUT, ID is an XML 1.0 concept and so it works the 
same with schemas as without...it's document wide.
