I'm not sure I understand your question, in the absence of a full

However, please understand that XSV is by default an instance
validator, not a schema conformance checker.  This means that it does
_not_ check schema completeness by default, and will only detect
broken references until it actually needs a named component for
instance validation purposes.

So if you're handing a schema document to XSV to validate, all it does
is check that it conforms to the sForS.

If you install your own copy, you can use the -i switch to force XSV
to do completeness checking on a set of schema documents.
