Or, even simpler, just give the schema validator the names of both
schema documents to load, at validation (or schema-compile) time.

For xmllint, for example, you might say

   xmllint --schema main.xsd --schema cdr.xsd instance.xml

For Saxon 9 SA,

   java -cp ... com.saxonica.Validate -s:instance.xml - 

For Xerces-J,

   java -cp ... jaxp.SourceValidator -i instance.xml -a main.xsd cdr.xsd

and so on.  The only XSD validator I know of that doesn't support
the specification of multiple schema documents on the command line is
