Sure. Schemas are used for all kinds of things like data binding and 
syntax-directed editing that aren't defined in the XSD spec; the only 
application of an XML schema that's defined in the spec is instance 
"validation" (which of course includes annotation/augmentation of the 
instance as well as verification).
