Not quite what you're asking for, but http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-formal/
(XML Schema: Formal Description) might be of interest.

Interesting question. There is some DOM work in this area:

http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-3-ASLS/
	http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-3-ASLS/abstract-schemas.html
	http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-3-ASLS/abstract-schemas.html#ASEditing


(I don't believe that either of these specs claim to represent everything
from XML Schema, but I've not studied either in detail).

Hope this helps,

Dan
