Yes, this will work with Libxml2. That's the combining schema, which
imports all other needed schemata, I mentioned earlier.
But just to be sure we talk about the same: if you want to validate
with Libxml2 you need to precompile this schema first and then start
validation; this schema has to be a schema document, or a node-tree,
and then it will be compiled into schema components, since Libxml2 has
currently no API to create schema components programatically.
